At this event the state of health in the EU and the digitalisation of it was discussed. The first session consisted of an overview of the general state of health in the EU.

In the second session the speakers considered the digital transformation in the industry, as part of a broader, comprehensive health promotion and disease prevention strategy. In this context, panellists discussed how policymakers can exploit the potential of digital tools to effectively support health promotion activities, as well as related risks and limitations.
