Partnering for AI applications across the health value chain

Big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning. New technologies that are moving fast forward and that impact many businesses worldwide. In life sciences many new and promising companies arise that develop AI solutions across the value chain, from basic research to production, clinical diagnostics, in-patient trials, disease follow-up, etc.

This event will showcase new applications and high-end solutions from international companies active in AI across the health value chain. Pitch-wise they will focus on the uniqueness of their solution and the impact for the patient/consumer. As they will indicate what is the collaboration they are looking for to bring their solution to the next level, partnering opportunities are foreseen for you to link with the presenting companies.

Modis and flanders.bio organize this event in the framework of flanders.health and the AI4Diag project within the COSME Programme of the European Union for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs.

This event will be a virtual livestream event with online partnering.
