B2B Meetings

Developing collaborations to deliver real and tangible benefits to citizens in Europe and the USA.

State House Boston

Taking place in the prestigious surroundings of the Massachusetts State House, Boston, October 23rd & 24th our action packed EU-US eHealth Marketplace is already generating an unprecedented level of interest.We hope you can join us.

Note: Matchmaking is now full with 300 meetings scheduled!

Offering engaging and informative short presentations from international leaders in connected health, the Marketplace itself will undoubtedly be the main attraction. Designed to stimulate and generate meaningful business opportunities and relationships, it will feature participating companies and organizations, with a focus on the ’meeting’ rather than the ‘showcasing’. Delegates can look forward to pre-arranged matchmaking appointments and popup exhibitions, as well as the innovative Speakers’ Corners on October 23rd, and unparalleled networking opportunities.

We are working to ensure that this event surpasses all expectations, we’re working closely with NIMAC, US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) the European Commission DG Connect (EC) and with ECHAlliance members across the US and Europe.

This exciting initiative is inspired by the DHHS(US) - EC(EU) Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation Surrounding Health Related Information and Communication Technologies, which encourages the development of effective collaborations to deliver real and tangible benefits to citizens in Europe and the USA.

2012 Transatlantic Health IT/eHealth Cooperation Assembly - Oct 24th
