Expert Forum "Digital Technologies and Health" in video
The Expert Forum is exploring the link between IT and health. As part of this, topics such as prevention, outpatient care, personalised therapy and aftercare are dealt with. The aim is to contribute to research, development and the transfer in these rapidly developing fields. A new video focusses on the work and challenges of the Expert Forum (available in German only).
The High-Tech Forum has 20 high-level members drawn from science, industry and civil society. Apart from innovative key technologies, the advisory group will take a closer look at relevant cross-cutting issues. For instance, it will explore new forms of how work can be organised to create a stronger focus on the innovative potential, or explore innovative, interactive processes to realise the full potential of digital opportunities. By involving key players from society at large, the High-Tech Forum focuses on a broad and modern concept of innovation. Apart from technological innovation the advisory group will also discuss suitable measures to promote social innovation.
