Collaborative Innovation for the Future of Health

 

The Belgium-Japan Association & Chamber of Commerce is proud to invite you to the inaugural event of the new BJA Innovation, Partnerships and Trade (IPT) Committee.

Prosperity in our societies and having better lives for everyone is one of the fundamental challenges for authorities, companies and essentially billions of people across the globe. Our communities become more ‘smart’, and increasingly determined by new technologies and their availability to the people. Therefore, the BJA IPT Committee has set the focus on a set of seminars on drivers for collaborative innovation between Japanese and Belgian teams.

As health is within this scope one of the biggest drivers, even more prominently so after 2 years of pandemic, Collaborative innovation for Health as the theme for the first inaugural event was chosen.

Four distinguished speakers will shed a light on the obstacles and opportunities to drive towards breakthrough technology innovation benefiting future health challenges. The purpose is to be a catalyst for further initiatives for Belgian-Japanese collaborations in this domain, as well supporting the framework of the upcoming Princely Mission to Japan at the end of this year.

We invite you to participate and share your views.
