The IEEE Summit on Technology for Health: Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing, is the fourth IEEE Summit in Brussels, as part of the IEEE European Public Policy Initiative (EPPI). The Summit will bring together policymakers, leaders in the healthcare, medical technology and electronics industries, and expert patients; in order to facilitate a dialogue on healthcare enabled by connected technologies, such as smart wearables, bio-sensors and implantable technologies. Four high-level keynote speakers including Roberto Viola - Director General, DG CNECT, European Commission, Joost Felix, Global Head of Integrated Care Solutions, Agfa HealthCare, Ilias Iakovidis, Adviser to the Director General of DG CNECT for Societal Challenges, European Commission, and Miguel Gonzalez-Sancho, Head of Unit for eHealth, Wellbeing and Ageing in DG CNECT, European Commission will deliver addresses that capture the key issues at stake in the current debate about innovation in technology-enabled healthcare, from both the policymaker and industry perspective. Overall, the Summit will approach the area of technology-enabled healthcare from different perspectives, focusing on the technological advances themselves and the transformative role they have, the challenges in terms of data management, and the need for a paradigm shift in how health and well being is (self) managed at the human level to accommodate this technological change.

Science Café with Thomas Jung is an unconventional open discussion with theme "Phytophthora species – threats for our nature". Thomas Jung is one of the most renowned Phytophthora experts in the world. Phytophthora is a genus of plant-damaging Oomycetes (water molds), whose member species are capable of causing enormous economic losses on crops worldwide, as well as environmental damage in natural ecosystems. Thomas Jung produced the first evidences of Phytophthora pathogens being involved in widespread forest declines in Europe and coordinated the largest forest disease survey in European history. His current institution is the Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic, where he runs the Phytophthora Research Centre. Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.
