Event Description

Wednesday 12 October from 17:30 to 19:00 CEST

Hybrid event: via Zoom and at The Merode Club, Place Poelaert 6, 1000 Brussels

This event brings together industry experts and policymakers to discuss digital health policy in the EU and in other parts of the world. The conversation will focus on the recent European Commission proposal for a European Health Data Space Regulation (EHDS Regulation), which aims to create a pan-European infrastructure for health data.

To lay the groundwork for an insightful discussion, the App Association will first present its 2022 report on ‘The App Economy in Europe’ to provide an overview of the mobile app market and its contributions to the European economy. For the panel discussion, we will welcome a panel of issue area experts, including those making healthcare policy and those building mHealth solutions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
