Future Health: Beyond the pill - when drug and digital converge

What’s the future of medicinal products? Is traditional pharma under pressure from demands stemming from developments in medtech and digital possibilities?

At this Life Science Morning Briefing, we address the issue of convergence of drugs and the digital space. You get a regulatory perspective on the digital health space from Rolf Oberlin Hansen (Danish Medicines Agency), and Jakob Eyvind Bardram (DTU) provides an overview of digital trends – and asks the central question: who will deliver treatments in the future?

(Presentations are in English, but during the debate you can ask questions in Danish too.)
