Track: Healthcare

Date and Time: 14 Mar 2023 08:30-09:50

Organisers: Maren Bödding, Françoise J. Siepel

Main questions to be answered: What does the innovation landscape in relation to healthcare robotics look like in future?

Additional questions: What will be the role of the European network DIH-HERO be in future and what to expect?

Additional questions 2: What is the added value of becoming a member of the DIH-HERO network and what are the opportunities?

Workshop Description: The deployment of robotic applications in healthcare-related settings is essential for bringing new innovations to the market, to the best benefit of the patient. Also in future the European network DIH-HERO will provide specialised knowledge, dedicated brokerage and advanced services to the healthcare robots community, to facilitate the deployment of new innovations in the field. During the session, success stories of innovators from the field and their experiences as well as the opportunities for robots and healthcare stakeholders within the DIH-HERO network will be shared. The audience will be involved interactively, to identify the needs and perspectives of the different stakeholders in the field to see how the service portfolio of DIH-HERO can be further matured across Europe, to provide high-quality services to the community also in future.

Intended Outcome: Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc, Workshop on recent developments in technology or applications, Information about community involvement and services offered (e.g. DIHs, open calls, platforms, …)
