In the lead up to G7, an online event aimed at Cornish SMEs is set to highlight how Cornish eHealth businesses and new technologies can tackle some of the most pertinent health challenges today.
The inaugural eHealth Innovation Summit 2021 will take place online on Wednesday June 9 and will showcase how Cornish eHealth businesses and new technologies are supporting care, health-related fields and wellbeing through innovation.
Key points of discussion include how innovation within the sector could form part of the global recovery from coronavirus, how digital health solutions can strengthen resilience against future pandemics and why a collective approach to creating and using new technologies is needed when solving global problems within the health sectors.
Organised by Acceleration Through Innovation 2 (ATI2) and eHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall (EPIC), two University of Plymouth led projects which are funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the event will feature some of the cutting-edge and globally relevant digital health and health tech solutions emerging from within Cornwall’s thriving tech and creative sectors.
Chairing the webinar is Jo Hancock, ATI2 programme manager at the University of Plymouth, who will introduce innovation from the ATI2 perspective, and share some of the many projects that their business support programme has supported throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly over the last four years.
She said: “Digital health is a real strength of the University of Plymouth, and it’s this world-class knowledge and research that the businesses working with ATI2, and EPIC, really benefit from. Our programmes often work collaboratively to help those Cornish SMEs who are innovating and creating some truly life-changing digital health solutions.
“The eHealth Innovation Summit will shine a light on those businesses and connect them to others in the South West, perhaps who are on similar journeys and can collaborate to solve the complex problems that the health sectors are facing.”
