Overview of regional project kick-off and inspirational eHealth event in Skåne, Sweden: Connect and be READi for Health

On April 24, the Skåne team invited members from the industry, academia and healthcare sector to meet, connect and discuss how to move e-health forward in the region.


The event hosted inspirational showcases from healthcare and IT and mobile technology, a panel discussion as well as an exhibition to meet local actors. Approximately some 130 visitors came and many took part in the different discussions throughout the day, making it a great triple helix occasion with meaningful exchange. 

The theme for the event was “how do we create a sparkling e-health workshop and a vital market in Skåne?”, focusing on what can be and should be done today. The discussions revealed differences in perception, especially between businesses and the public healthcare sector. But it was also evident that there are paths to be taken for successful projects, as many of the presentations offered insightful, inspirational and experienced advice.


All participants were invited to join our survey on e-health and to sign up for our upcoming focus groups.


Some of the presentations from the event are available (in Swedish) here.

The regions of MurciaMidi-Pyrénée and Oulu also held regional events to inform about the READi for Health project objectives, action plan, and partners. Please click the links below to access presentations from these events.
