4 inspiring days

Join us for four days of learning, exploring, testing ideas and co-creating solutions. This Congress is dedicated to promoting the uptake of patient-driven digital solutions, generating recommendations based on patient knowledge and expertise, forging new partnerships in an under-explored health space, and much more. Due to the current public health situation, the Congress 2021 will be held virtually, with a physical follow-up event in Brussels, in Spring 2022 (subject to change).

9 high-level advisers

A high-level advisory board composed of 9 experts from the NGO, governmental, academic and healthcare industry sectors are assisting EPF with strategic advice to ensure the lasting impact of the event. These ambassadors, with their diverse and rich backgrounds, will help showcase why patient involvement is critical to successful innovation in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
