The IEEE Summit on Technology for Health: Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing, is the fourth IEEE Summit in Brussels, as part of the IEEE European Public Policy Initiative (EPPI).
The Summit will bring together policymakers, leaders in the healthcare, medical technology and electronics industries, and expert patients; in order to facilitate a dialogue on healthcare enabled by connected technologies, such as smart wearables, bio-sensors and implantable technologies.
Four high-level keynote speakers including Roberto Viola - Director General, DG CNECT, European Commission, Joost Felix, Global Head of Integrated Care Solutions, Agfa HealthCare, Ilias Iakovidis, Adviser to the Director General of DG CNECT for Societal Challenges, European Commission, and Miguel Gonzalez-Sancho, Head of Unit for eHealth, Wellbeing and Ageing in DG CNECT, European Commission will deliver addresses that capture the key issues at stake in the current debate about innovation in technology-enabled healthcare, from both the policymaker and industry perspective.
Overall, the Summit will approach the area of technology-enabled healthcare from different perspectives, focusing on the technological advances themselves and the transformative role they have, the challenges in terms of data management, and the need for a paradigm shift in how health and well being is (self) managed at the human level to accommodate this technological change.

6th International Fluid Academy Days (IFAD)
23-25 November 2017, Antwerp, Belgium
After the success of the last edition being fully booked with over 500 participants, we are very excited to present you the Sixth International Fluid Academy Days!
A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects.
Fluids should be seen as any other drug with indications and contraindications and possible adverse effects. In analogy to antibiotics it is time to consider the 4 D's of fluid therapy.
