BIH Digital Health Accelerator | Online Demo Day 2021 (in English)

On 19 May 2021 it’s time for the Demo Day of the BIH Digital Health Accelerator. Ten innovation teams from Charité and BIH will pitch the new healthcare projects in Digital Health, MedTech and Life Sciences they are currently developing.

The Digital Health Accelerator (DHA) is a program of the 'Digital Labs' unit of Charité BIH Innovation, the joint technology transfer of Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH). The program supports the development of innovations from the idea to market maturity, application and/or spin-off as a StartUp.

Join us to learn more about these exciting innovations and discuss translational medicine in digital health with researchers, clinicians, industry representatives, investors, politicians and other key stakeholders in healthcare.

We look forward to the interactive breakout Q&A sessions with our Berlin digital health ecosystem and international network of industry partners!
