Driving Innovation to Achieve Healthcare Impact
June 3, 2014

Hosted by The Madrid-MIT M+Visión Consortium

Madrid’s healthcare innovation ecosystem faces an urgent and long-term challenge to create an environment that attracts, develops, and retains globally competitive talent in order to realize economic benefit. How can leaders of healthcare, academic, and industry organizations in Madrid collaborate to compete on the European and world stages? How can they create a regional ecosystem that fosters innovation activity? This conference will aim to propose answers to these questions and more.
