On May 20th 2021 14:00-17:20 CEST a Webinar on Public Health and Responsible Innovation in a post-Covid Europe was held by De Montfort University and “la Caixa” Foundation

As Covid-19 will remain a part of our lives for the next years, the role of public and preventative health has been rarely so important. Digital tools and technologies offer great opportunities to the healthcare sector. However, the challenges and risks in this aspect have to be considered critically.

This webinar focused on:

  • the challenges and dilemmas for Responsible Innovation in the public health sector; 
  • bringing together community and commercial perspectives; and
  • helping to chart a responsible and sustainable way forward for innovation in public health.

Watch this forward thinking event and:

  • Learn about recent developments for Responsible Innovation and how these fit with goals for CSR, ESG, circularity, the UN SDGs and European policy agendas; 
  • Engage, through your questions, in the dialogue between leading experts; and
  • Help your organisation when designing and developing health-related products, providing or procuring technologies and services in a responsible and sustainable way.
