When:Th 07-03-2024 09:00 - 17:30
Where:House of Connections, Grote Markt 21, 9712 HR Groningen

Explore the diverse world of eHealth, spanning clinical, behavioral, technical, legal and operational domains. The Symposium aims to bridge the gap between healthcare researchers from different disciplines. With the goal of improving the quality of research, solving healthcare challenges and paving the way for a healthier future.

Digital health or eHealth becomes increasingly important in healthcare. Many researchers in Groningen are working on this topic from different angles. Scientific collaboration on eHealth in Groningen is expected to lead to more impactful projects and to enhance healthcare improvement. Therefore, we are organising a multidisciplinary eHealth conference. The speakers are researchers from different disciplines of the UMCG, Hanze university and University of Groningen.


These are the conference topics:

  • Rol van technologie bij toegankelijke zorg (Dutch)
  • Law and regulation
  • Developing VR/Robotics/Sensoring
  • Accessibility/Usability of eHealth
  • Implementation and change management
  • Behavioral change

Everyone who is interested in eHealth is welcome to join. The conference is free of charge and includes a lunch and network drinks. Most sessions are in English. The number of participants is limited so make sure to subscribe in time. Expand your network, learn from your colleagues by joining our conference!
