Building the Future of Health – International conference

Building the Future of Health is the name of a large international conference that will take place in June 2016. It marks a fundamental development in how we think about our healthcare system and public health. If we are all really starting to (and want to) grow older and healthier, the key lies in a different, more conscious lifestyle. Eating patterns, the influences played by our surroundings, sufficient exercise and their mutual interaction play an important role. Health is then no longer simply and solely related to healthcare. Investments in the prevention of diseases are becoming more important than the continuous expansion of current medical facilities. Prevention is the magic word, as well as being a possible life buoy for the costs of healthcare, which are already rising.

From 1 – 3 June 2016 the international conference Building the Future of Health will take place in Groningen, the Netherlands. On Friday 3 June Sylvie Bove, CEO of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Health will host a workshop in which the potential for European regions will be explored within EIT Health. This session is scheduled from 1 – 3 pm.
