This Wednesday Uni Heidelberg´s speaker series heiINNOVATION talks in digital health is about to start.The talks take place online every Wednesday and start at 5 pm. The series is conceptually supported by the hih - health innovation hub of the Federal Ministry of Health in Berlin. heiINNOVATION is the transfer agency of Heidelberg University, aiming at knowledge and technology transfer of research results into society.

Digitisation as a major force of change is increasingly presenting new challenges for the healthcare sector. However, digitalisation also has the potential to rethink traditional solutions with the help of new technologies, innovative products and advanced services, and to adapt them efficiently to a rapidly changing world. Entrepreneurship as an important driver for the further development of innovative ideas, current research approaches and technology transfer are of particular focus. The series offers a cross section of perspectives from different stakeholders in the health sector, and at the same time gives actors from research, politics and business the opportunity to network with each other.
