EPoSS - The Product Driven Platform

EPoSS Workshop on "Smart Systems for the Automated Hospital" in Berlin, Germany on 13 September 2017

Up one level

Within the megatrend of digitising the society, all sectors will experience new concepts and approaches to respond to societal needs and to conceive products and services. The health sector has to rethink the role of healthcare in the society and redesign the provision of services to individuals.

In view of these changing requirements, the European Technology Platform on Smart System Integration’s (EPoSS) invites you to the

EPoSS Workshop on Smart Systems for the Automated Hospital

at VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH, Steinplatz 1, 10623 Berlin, Germany on 13 September 2017 from 10:00-16:00.

Digital technologies offer interesting opportunities to improve the healthcare system and to contribute to a more personalised medicine. However, eHealth does not only mean digitising healthcare through a software approach but also comprises hardware-centric or hybrid hardware-software visions. Additionally, if healthcare is in the future seamlessly integrated in people’s life, specific medical interventions will still require dedicated, high-end and costly medical equipment and a framework that only hospitals will be able to provide. The hospital environment has therefore to adapt. Automation appears as one smart approach to support the digitisation of hospitals.

To be able to fully assess all these aspects of the “Automated Hospital”, the workshop is open to the EPoSS community as well as external stakeholders. The active involvement of other European Technology Platforms shall further guarantee the cross-platform and pan-European alignment of discussions. Regarding the programme, different interactive formats shall ensure highly effective discussions. The preliminary agenda will be circulated in a timely manner.

The results of the workshops will not only serve as an input for the EPoSS Annual Forum 2017 on “Smart Systems for an Automated World”, taking place in October this year, but will also be condensed into Position Papers that will provide a point of reference for shaping the European Framework Programme 9.

To register please send an informal e-mail to Ms. Davina Wenninger (Davina.Wenninger@vdivde-it.de).

We look forward to your participation!
