LIFE SCIENCE LIVE 2019 PROGRAM

LIFE SCIENCE LIVE CONSISTS OF THREE PARALLEL SEMINARS:

Science Track

The two sessions of the Science Track have been entitled “Intelligent Solutions for Health” and “Personalized Health”. The programme committee has invited internationally known experts representing academic research, enterprises and public agencies to cover these timely topics. The University of Turku and the Åbo Akademi University will also build a large exhibition that introduces e.g. the latest research projects and innovations, life science technology platforms and biobanking.

i~HD

The European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD) is a not for profit institute legally registered in Belgium. It is a membership-based organisation with members from pharma, healthcare providers, academic organisations, and also works closely with patient organisations, healthcare payers, the health ICT sector and standards development organisations. The vision of i~HD is to improve healthcare and to accelerate research through more trustworthy learning from health data. It engages with all stakeholders in order to co-create high quality and secure environments for data sharing and data use. It aims to maximise efficiency and effectiveness, have better data quality, improve connectivity between practitioners and keep the patients’ needs centre stage.
i~HD has specialist expertise in information governance, privacy protection (including GDPR compliance) and information security, in particular regarding the reuse of health data in research under a variety of legal bases. Its experts have developed information security policies, data sharing agreements, codes of practice, SOPs, audit and escalation policies and other instruments that have been used in several Horizon 2020, IMI and national projects.
It runs a Network of Excellence of European hospitals who are keen to accelerate their reuse of health data to improve outcomes and to participate more extensively in research including pharma sponsored clinical trials.
i~HD has developed methods and tools to assess and help improve the quality of EHR data. It promotes the importance of data quality for the benefit of learning health systems, patient empowerment and clinical research. It has formalised the data quality indicators that are most important to making better use of health records for learning, and the strategies that hospitals can adopt to improve their data quality. A Data Quality Seal and improvement service were launched in late 2018, initially for hospitals.
i~HD includes world leading experts on interoperability, especially semantic interoperability, and the development of international standards. It has led or co-led the development of ISO standards on EHR interoperability, consent and confidentiality, contributed to HL7 standards on clinical data, served on the Board of CDISC and been part of many European think tanks and investigations into interoperability issues.

HealthBIO

The HealthBIO event organized ever since 2007  has become the biggest annual Finnish health-biotech company meeting. The event offers you an opportunity to meet international big Life Science companies, SMEs and rising stars at 1-to-1 meetings.  Altogether ca 200 – 250 attendees, the main health-biotech company decision makers in Finland  join the event for partnering and presentations. This is the event to make contacts in Finland.
The program – in English – covers highlights of the recent industry milestones and prospects for the future in Finland and Europe with international speakers as well as funding trends and success stories of fast-growing SMEs.  The day ends with an informal get-together event. Next day a partnering event organized in collaboration with European Enterprise Network EEN enables you to get more business contacts. You will also be able to listen to start-up pitches and get good information of the academic research and development co-development opportunities and learn about the results of the research groups.
