Nowadays, innovation and healthcare go hand-in-hand. That is particularly true for Belgium, which is home to many international companies playing a leading and pioneering role in those fields. Thanks to that, Belgium now boasts one of the strongest healthcare ecosystems in the world.
Following the May 26 elections, AmCham Belgium and its Innovative Healthcare Committee are pleased to invite you to the first major debate of the new legislative period called “Innovative Healthcare in Belgium: Outlook and Challenges”.
The debate will feature representatives from various political parties who are part of the Healthcare Committee of the Federal Parliament. They will discuss today’s biggest opportunities for Belgium and its world-class healthcare sector, for instance data-based healthcare, value-based healthcare or integrated care. Our keynote speaker will be none other than our current Federal Minister of Health, Maggie De Block.
Do not miss this opportunity to learn more about how Belgium’s main parties aim to foster innovation in the healthcare sector in Belgium!
The keynote will be in English. Please note that the debate will only take place in French and in Dutch. No simultaneous interpreting will be available.
