DayOne Conference – shaping the future of health

The annual DayOne Conference on 11 September 2018 will again bring together a unique mix of influential speakers, healthcare innovators, patients and startups to discuss and shape the future of health.
We will be incorporating the experience of patients as experts in living with their condition with involvement of patient experts throughout the day.

In the morning thought leaders will discuss the healthcare systems’ changing innovation needs followed by a real-life success story in Healthcare Innovation. The afternoon will be hands on: The participants are invited to team up with one of the 25+ selected ideas and projects from the acceleration program and support them with their expertise (see below how to submit an idea or a project).

Ideas and projects

We will have two tracks for our working sessions. One is of general interest and dedicated to ideas on shaping the future of health that idea champions would like to develop further with the audience. The second track is part of our accelerator program focused on Pediatric Health and will give these projects a chance to develop their ideas with the audience before the final round of selection.

Ideas on shaping the future of health

If you have an idea that you feel can help shape the future of health and that would benefit from exposure to diverse stakeholders from across Healthcare and Life Sciences, please share some details here by August 8th: DayOneConference Idea . Selected ideas will get a chance to work on their idea at the DayOne conference and a chance to win space at the DayOne lab.
