Webinar - 5G Hub Eindhoven presents: The Future of Health

27 okt. 2020, 13.00 - 14.00

Over the past few months, the whole world has stood together to find practical and quick answers to a severe health crisis. Previous issues, however, are still present, and healthcare providers keep finding themselves in need, more often than not, of innovative, safe solutions.

From high-tech laboratories or kitchen table “offices,” research has continued to advance, for brilliant ideas to tackle new and old problems never stop arriving. Now, thanks to 5G’s faster, more reliable networks, science and technology professionals have the opportunity to reach unprecedented results. 

5G Hub and High Tech Campus Eindhoven invite you to have a sneak peek on the Future of Health. How can 5G networks enhance solutions for medical treatments? Our board of speakers will share their latest accomplishments, discoveries, and developments in the field. It is more than a display of what cutting-edge technology will (soon) do for our health: it is the envision of a brighter tomorrow.
