Join us at this open, innovative event aimed at bringing together stakeholders from EIP action groups, reference sites, connected health ecosystems, SMEs, innovators, public officials, patient groups, academics, entrepreneurs and buyers.
The focus of the EU Marketplace for eHealth & EIP on AHA is bringing together large industry, SMEs, policy makers, researchers, care professionals, service providers, buyers and consumers through formal and informal meetings.
‘GET Funded & International’ @ eHealth Forum was a focused and lively session, providing a unique opportunity for SMEs to present their investment and internationalisation plans to an international panel of investors, purchasers and industry leaders. This stimulated a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights into what investors and purchasers are looking for.
SMEs benefitted from personalized feedback on their plans and heard about support available to access the US market through the SelectUSA program. The session also provided SMEs with unparalleled networking opportunities to create contacts and secure links for follow-up after the session.
