The Workshop Valorisation of Research Results from Healthcare Projects


The panel discussion "Understanding and Raising Venture Capital in Health-Tech Context" will explore how technologies that bring more value to healthcare can match the mandate of venture capitalists and how the latter operate; how investors influence the technologies that make their way into healthcare systems; what capital investors identify as valuable and what is the link with important health needs; the level of congruence between a given health tech venture and the mandate of venture capital.


The Business Development and Partnering with Industry panel is designed to attract and to maximise opportunities for interaction, network and business development with potential partners, investors and collaborators and leading business coaches and mentors. The speaker will introduce the topic by interactive presentation, followed by discussion and exchange on concrete cases from the audience.


Public Funding theme will be aimed at understanding types and programmes for supporting health-tech projects and companies, as well as specific tools and mechanisms in using public finance.
