Sustainable Health Day at the Innovation Week 26 by the University of Bordeaux

28 June 2017, Bordeaux, France.
The University of Bordeaux explores leading innovations within the health system. No matter the discipline (translational imaging, rhythmology and electrophysiology, or even experimental psychopathology) the questions remain the same: as academics, what is our role in the modernization and improvement of healthcare? Consequently, what are the societal impacts of the innovations we have to offer?

The full day forum includes a keynote address by Dr Rafael Bengoa (formerly at the Basque country government & WHO), two round-tables chaired by Pr. Geneviève Chêne (university of Bordeaux) and Kristel Van Der Elst (The Global Foresight Group & World Economic Forum) on the future of national health systems and healthcare innovation under constraints respectively, and an innovation showcase. Denise Silber, international eHealth pioneer and event communication specialist, is the Master of Ceremonies.

The speakers are senior executives, academics, changemakers and entrepreneurs from France, the USA, Spain, Belgium, Japan, China...

The introductory keynote by Dr Rafael Bengoa is "The Inevitable Transformation of Health Care. International Trends and Lessons." According to Dr Bengoa: "In the next eight years our health systems will suffer the same impact as in the last 40 years from the demographic pressure. That is just one of the challenges on the systems. There are many others which together force us to transform health care and accelerate the decisions it implies. Many country reforms are giving us hints as to the direction of travel for reform."

The forum will be available in both English and French. It is aimed at a select audience of opinion leaders, decision makers, experts, public or private professionals, as part of WEEK26 (International and Innovation Week).

Registration is free, but places are limited.
