Pitch for Smarter Healthcare at the Roche Innovation Summit

RocheThe European Innovation Council (EIC) SME Instrument and Roche invite you to pitch your ideas and breakthroughs on healthcare tech at the Roche Innovation Summit on the 19th and 20th of June in Basel, Switzerland. On a yearly basis, Roche organises an internal Innovation summit, to inspire, connect, develop and advance their organisation. This year's summit theme is about Transforming the Healthcare Experience Together.

A select number of SME Instrument companies will be encouraged to attend the Roche Innovation summit where they will have the opportunity to pitch and present their business cases and ideas, network with Roche product managers, research and technology scouts, procurement representatives, venture managers and meet with affiliated companies.

All companies with solutions, products or services relating to healthcare business tech are welcome to apply. The selection will consider, but is not limited to: mobile health, digital biomarkers, health apps, diagnostics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, clinical data integration, electronic healthcare records, virtual reality, augmented reality, data analytics and robotics.

The time has come where personalised healthcare can transform patients’ lives by delivering care tailored to the individual, thereby helping to prevent, diagnose and treat patients more effectively and quickly.

If your company can contribute to better and smarter healthcare, apply here until the 13th of April.
