This conference will bring together the key stakeholders of the healthcare sector to highlight and discuss the policy developments needed for research and innovation in healthcare at European and National level, in the frame of the Innovation Union and beyond.

The objective of the second edition of this conference is to produce an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) for innovation in healthcare and make specific recommendations that will be addressed to policy-makers and stakeholders. The whole event will be complemented by a small "fair" where associations and support structures will provide information to the participants.

Commissioner for Research and Innovation, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship, Antonio Tajani, and Commissioner John Dalli, responsible for Health and Consumers, are invited to be among the speakers.
