DESIREE present at eHealth Week 2016

Project Coordinator, Dr Ivan Macia attended the eHealth week 2016 and presented DESIREE at the Speakers’ Corner.

eHealth Week 2016 was organised by the Dutch Ministry of Health as part of the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and HIMSS Europe. 

DESIREE project was invited in the Speakers’ Corner. It participated with a presentation by the Project Coordinator, Dr Ivan Macia on 9th June, and was the only attending project from its Unit. 

The feedback from the event was overall very positive, providing the opportunity to see what is currently trending in eHealth related technology. Interesting projects, like the IBM work on breast cancer using Watson, with affinity to DESIREE and its objectives, were also identified!

eHealth Week 2016 educational programme focused on three main themes:
•    Empowering People
•    Trust & Standards
•    Social Innovation & Transition

This year’s Speakers Corner at eHealth Week was organised jointly by HIMSS Europe and ECH Alliance with the aim to support small companies, SME’s and EU funded projects who are not on the main programme and give them the chance to present their ideas, products and solutions to their target audience. The Speakers Corner was an area within the Entrepreneurial Village which featured five minute presentations in which the speakers had the chance to take to the stage. The presentations also tied in to the wider eHealth Week conference themes: Empowering People, Trust and Standards and Social Innovation & Transition.
