European Commission EVP Margrethe Vestager will deliver a keynote speech at the 2023 edition of the European Health Summit on the need to build a solid infrastructure for the European Digital Health. 

EVP Vestager will also be joined by high-level policymakers and business leaders in a panel discussion on quantum computing in the healthcare sector.

The biotechnological pharmaceutical company HIPRA is joining EHS 2023, bringing its expertise as an established entity focused on prevention for animal and human health, with a broad range of highly innovative vaccines and an advanced diagnostic service:

For a 100% European pharmaceutical company like HIPRA, being part of the European Business Summit is a thrilling opportunity to contribute to the policy debate that will help build a resilient European Health Union.

Already a central topic at the European Health Summit (Summer Edition) and the focus of the October task force meeting, the Summit will address the EU Pharma Legislation, emphasising the need to strengthen the competitiveness and innovation of the healthcare system, with the ultimate aim of reaching autonomy.

The rapporteur of the European Health Data Space, Member of the European Parliament Tomislav Sokol will join the 2023 edition of the European Health Summit, providing his insights on EU digital health, the secondary use of data and more. 

The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations will participate to EHS 2023 to bring forward the debate on a pharma strategy to foster Europe’s competitiveness on a global scale.

A growing and aging global population strains healthcare systems. To enhance resilience,EHS 2023 will address factors like nutrition, sustainable food, environment, agriculture, fisheries, and climate policies in healthcare. The urgency of a One Health approach, spanning all sectors, is evident due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other disease outbreaks with their societal and economic consequences.
