Event description

Description

The 6th Edition of the Swiss-Korea Life Science Symposium series will take place in Basel on 28th of August on the Novartis Campus. The Symposium is aimed at bringing together Switzerland and Korea’s most innovative minds from public institutions of research, leading hospitals, industry, startups and thought leaders in healthcare and digital technologies. The Symposium is supported by governments and the healthcare industry from Switzerland and Korea as part of a broader initiative to support more exchange of best practice and knowledge, form and spin-out bilateral collaboration projects in different areas of healthcare. Basel, as the Swiss “capital” of healthcare, is hosting the Symposium for the second time after already welcoming guests from Korea in 2017.

From visionary ideas to the patients

Digital technologies are drastically changing the lifescience and healthcare industry at all levels: research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, caregivers, and payors must find a way to navigate between hype, buzzwords, and hard evidence-based facts.

During the Symposium, two challenges for the present and future of digital healthcare will stand at the center:

  • The skills that we need to learn and teach to educate people from both the public and the private sector, which need to be able to solve the challenges in healthcare digitalization;

  • A “reality-check” for digital health. What are promising or successful approaches to getting better and more personalized diagnostics and treatments for patients, and what is just a hype, buzz or still very far from reality?

The first “skills” session of the symposium will be co-chaired by University of Basel and Yonsei University and the second “reality check” session by the CEO of Artidis, one of the most brilliant startups in digital health, based in Basel, and by the President and CEO of Korea Drug Development Fund.
