Event report Innovation for Health 2018

A summary of the fifth edition of Innovation for Health

The fifth edition of Innovation for Health on 1 February 2018 visited by a record number of attendees!

On Thursday 1 February 2018, over 850 key players and stakeholders from across Life Sciences & Health joined the festive fifth edition of Innovation for Health, in collaboration with the Global Investor Forum. With this record number of delegates and the very extensive high-level programme, this edition exceeded the expectations of both the visitors and the organisation. The organisation received an overwhelmingly positive response from the visitors and exhibitors. To quote one of the attendees: ā€œIā€™d like to congratulate you with a spectacular edition of Innovation for Health. Organisation, level of the speakers, coffee and lunch, possibility for networking: it was all phenomenal.ā€

Innovation for Health kicked-off with an plenary opening featuring inspiring keynotes of Jan van de Winkel (Genmab) and Travis McCready (Massachussets Life Sciences Center), moderated by the Innovation for Health 2018 chairman Ton van der Steen. Due to the Buzzmaster system, which allowed visitors to vote and digitally ask questions to the keynotes, the opening was very interactive!

On the exhibition floor it was continuously busy. With live radio from BNR Nieuwsradio, innovative IDEA pitches, more than 50 exhibitors and a festive award ceremony of the Upcoming Scientist Award, the atmosphere was very good throughout the day.

Also the sessions rooms were mostly packed. The different sessions dealing with themes like a.o. personalized medicine, prevention, patient centred innovations and IP valuation, also featured some very well-known like Marlies Schijven, Jacob Seidell and Peter de Keizer.

The conference was closed plenary in the Rotterdam Hall with not only keynotes from Maarten Steinbuch (TU/e) and Barend Mons (DTL), but also with a panel discussion about ethical aspects of innovation, moderated by Annelien Bredenoord (D66, UMC Utrecht). After two pitches of the start-up finalists, SPERATUM was ultimately awarded with the AXON Innovation for Health Award.

With the closing drinks, the conference came to the end for the majority of the delegates. For a select group, a special dinner program awaited with entertainment and keynote speeches of Kees Been (Lysosomal Therapeutics) and Onno van de Stolpe (Galapagos). Around 21:30 hours, most of the visitors called it a night and the organisation looked back on another successful edition of Innovation for Health!
