IMI Stakeholder Forum 2015
On 15/06/2015 (Brussels)

Every year, the IMI Stakeholder Forum gathers IMI’s stakeholders in health and medicines R&D and provides them with an opportunity to learn about and discuss IMI's latest activities and plans.

In particular, we would like to highlight the session dedicated to Enabling technologies: better health outcomes through big data.
A concept paper for an IMI working programme on ‘better health outcomes through big data’ currently is being finalised. It will be published online before the event and presented during this session. This session serves as a consultation with payers, regulators, prescribers, patients, HTAs as well as all other stakeholders. IMI encourages an open debate with the audience on this topic, in order to gather feedback and ideas for collaboration to further develop the programme.
