The Kick-off event aims at presenting the Innovation Camps plan and timeline as well as facilitating relevant engagement of all VI regional stakeholders.
It is organised in the framework of the VI Smart Health Pilot which, through the VI methodology ‘learn, connect, demonstrate, commercialise’, can facilitate the mobilisation of the quadruple helix in the Innovation Camp, to identify innovative solutions for accelerating the digital healthcare transformation at the EU regional level, by bringing further the development of the new RIS3 strategies from the different regions participating in Vanguard Initiative, and in particular in the VI Smart Health Pilot.
Engagement and discussion will kick-start on the basis of SAPHIRe- a Consortium for Securing the Adoption of Personalised Health in Regions, which aims to structure the application of health at the regional level, which will drive the transition towards sustainable healthcare and personalised health.
