Dialogue with CEOs: “From Here to 2025: Personalised Medicine and Healthcare for an Immediate Future”

A massive improvement in the health of Europe’s citizens is within reach – but making it happen faces challenges that are as much political as technical.

Scientists, technologists, physicians and health economists have devised innovative pathways to boost the health status of individuals and to make healthcare systems more sustainable. Advanced personalised health is no longer a science-fiction vision. It is a tangible possibility.

What is needed now to turn vision into reality is a clearer understanding among Europe’s policymaker and decision-takers about what is at stake: about the gains that can be made with the right actions, and equally about the opportunities that might be squandered with the wrong ones.

This session will feature leading politicians and CEOs.
