Sectoral Workshop 1 titled ‘Photonics in the health sector’ was held on October 3 in Badalona, Spain. It was organised by secpho in collaboration with Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol (HGTP) and Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP). The event facilitated generation of synergies among health professionals and researchers, industry companies and photonics professionals, with an overall intent to provide comprehensive and competitive solutions to the market.
As the workshop was organised in collaboration with the hospital, the objective of the workshop was to confirm and validate the value chain with participants from medical and IT sectors and to identify their positioning in it, aiming to understand what kind of collaboration potential exists between the participants. As a result, the participants from the medical sector gained a common understanding of the general medical diagnostics value chain, its technological challenges and the capabilities of light-based technologies, with the final objective to tackle digitalisation challenges within the health sector.
As a follow up of the workshop, the hospital sent out an internal communication to all the participants from the medical sector in order to identify and collect information on the innovation challenges, which will be the focus of the upcoming DIGI-B-CUBE Cross-sectoral Workshop on December 4, 2019.
