The 4th edition will take place in Paris, at The HealthTech Space, 16 place de la Bourse, 75002 Paris, and virtually (hybrid format).

The programme of the round tables of this 4th edition* is built around six major themes:

Towards a Europe of Health

European nations share common goals in terms of improving quality of life and increasing life expectancy. This convergence must lead the European Union to develop a strategy to advance the “right of access to health for all” and to meet the challenges of financing and innovation, in order to build a Europe of health at the service of all EU citizens and patients. Two round tables will address these issues:

  • Build tomorrow’s healthcare for all European citizens

  • Prospective scenario of the health system in 2032 and perspective at European level

The new frontiers of health innovation

The increasingly revolutionary advances in biotechnology (genomics, mRNA, immunology, etc.) are just beginning to bear fruit, while digitalisation and the advent of artificial intelligence are giving a powerful boost to all scientific areas. Six round tables will provide an overview of those new frontiers:

  • Age-related diseases

  • Impact of mRNA application in innovative drugs with the support of adapted manufacturing settings

  • Translational microbiome medicine to treat serious oncology and infectious diseases

  • How does artificial intelligence (AI) strengthen the full healthcare value chain?

  • Women's Health

  • Impact of new regulations on AI in healthcare

The ongoing challenge of financing health innovation

Healthcare companies need strong and constant financial support at each stage of their development, from the laboratory to market access. They rely on public funding and a network of investors specialised in life sciences, which must constantly adapt to an unstable environment. Four round tables will review the challenges of these accelerations:

  • Financial tools impacting health innovation growth in Europe

  • Covid “wake up call” on health innovation investments – Opportunities and turbulence

  • Importance of R&D collaborations between players

  • IPO testimonials and expectations

Putting the patient back into the heart of innovation

"Placing citizens at the centre, empowering them to control their data in order to benefit from better healthcare" is the ambition stated by the European Commission. Digitalisation and point-of-care technologies are opening the way to a true consideration of the patient, both in terms of therapy and diagnosis, from the design of solutions to real-life monitoring. Two round tables are dedicated to this revolution!

Mobilising human resources and talent

The current revolutions in the healthcare sector can be a major  growth engine for Europe. But this growth will require people with the right skills. The war for skills is already underway between ecosystems and companies. It entails investments but also new modes of organisation and cooperation.

  • Matching the required talents for a sustainable development: constraints and opportunities

Building a transatlantic bridge to a sustainable and globally impactful societal health economy

The EU has many assets to leverage its potential. But it must not get isolated. The construction of an effective North Atlantic bridge is essential to ensure close and permanent cooperation between laboratories, international companies, in the fields of academic and applied research, long-term innovation and industrial cooperation. A round table will be dedicated to this ambition:

  • Social impact of an effective North Atlantic Bridge for long term innovation

The 4th edition of HTID benefits from the support of sponsors: Amgen, BNP Paribas, Bpifrance, Bristol Myers Squibb, Cepton Strategies/ Vintura, Dechert, EIT Health, Euronext, Ferring, Jeito Capital, Icosa, Invest Securities, Ipsen, Leem (Les Entreprises du Médicament), Life Sciences Acceleration Alliance, McDermott Will & Emery, Microsoft, Rothschild&Co, Sanofi, Servier, Sofinnova Partners and Alpha Blue Ocean, allowing to bring together all the experts around the themes addressed.
