Frontiers Health 2020 day one

Digital health innovation conference Frontiers Health kicks off its 2020 edition 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.

Healthware Group CEO Roberto Ascione will open the conference with Frontiers Conferences CEO Matteo Penzo.

This will be followed by a keynote speech on digital health during Germany’s EU Council Presidency by Dr Gottfried Ludewig, director general digitalisation and innovation at the Federal Ministry of Health, Germany.
