EIT Health, Ljubljana University Incubator – Ljubljanski univerzitetni inkubator and AmCham Health and Wellbeing Committee invite you to:

“The glory of medicine is that it is constantly moving forward, that there is always more to learn. The ills of today do not cloud the horizon of tomorrow, but act as a spur to greater effort.”

— William James Mayo

We are witnessing the most massive worldwide health crisis in modern history, yet we should not forget the future is now. What will we do about it?

New technologies, advanced knowledge, scientific breakthroughs, value-based and personalized medicine. All great spurs and opportunities, but will they translate to more quality for patients?

Why is it essential that science, business, investors, regulators, and medicine collaborate? What role can Slovene knowledge and companies play in global development? What are the key challenges? How to collaborate with multinational companies as an equal partner? Why does the state need to be advanced and empower the experts in the public and business sectors?
