Objectives of the pre-IC:

· Present and promote the IC concept
· Raise awareness on the cross-sectoral impact of KitNewCare
· Attract the industry and different sectors that have the potential of contributing to the IC

Date: 13 June 2024
Time: 10.00 – 11.30 CET

Register to Zoom

The IC represents the convergence of a) the scouting and identification of technologies, b) the engagement with other sectors within healthcare, and c) the engagement with other industries outside of the healthcare sector. This convergence aims to identify technologies and solutions that have been implemented in other sectors than healthcare, and that if adapted can serve a sustainability impact in the framework of KitNewCare.
