BIH Digital Health Forum goes Summer Barbecue

Dear digital health community at BIH, Charité, MDC and in Berlin!

Are you a researcher, clinician, health care professional, designer, developer, engineer, regulatory expert, corporate innovator, entrepreneur, investor or mentor working in digital health, or generally interested in this topic?

As the football season will have its Summit from June 15 to July 15 and summertime in Berlin is much more enjoyable outside, you are cordially invited to the summer edition of BIH Digital Health Forum (formerly Roundtable) – an event series to connect everyone interested in digital health to stimulate our innovation ecosystem in Berlin and beyond. This time we like to have a casual get together outside with a short talk and barbecue to celebrate the Digital Health Community and the summertime.

This format offers:

  • Talks and panel discussions on the latest digital technologies and their application to healthcare
  • Open mic for everyone to present a pain point, idea, project or solution to seek support

The event series is organized by Berlin Health Innovations (BHI) and Hacking Health. For the Summer Edition we will be joined once again by the Berlin Meetup Group ”Machine Learning in Healthcare” and the Social Bioinformatics Meeting.
Furthermore, our partner Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) is starting a new Master’s program in Digital Health and will be present to give more information on the program.
