Digital health innovation conference Frontiers Health kicks off its 2020 run on this week, although the majority of the conference will be held online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year Frontiers will be a global Hybrid conference. In line with the “new normal” situation, the format of the 2020 edition will be hybrid combining online global streaming together with offline events and activities held at hubs in multiple locations such as Italy, Germany, Finland, Spain, the USA and more
It will be dedicated to digital health innovation in the context of the ‘new normal’, focusing on telemedicine, digital therapies, breakthrough technologies, patient-centricity, healthcare transformation and ecosystem development.
This year’s programme will start at 2.00pm CET on both days with plenary sessions (talks and panels) and parallel break-out sessions (masterclass, workshop, deep-dive formats) in the unique Frontiers style.
The iconic Start-up Discovery sessions have also moved online opening more opportunities to connect with both earlier stage and more established digital health start-ups.
Highlights of day one include a welcome performance by musician Korinami, with visuals by designer Joe Ferrari.
