May 30, 2024
Keynote speeches, tech talks, panel talks and pitch sessions.

The MEDICA INNOVATION FORUM (the successor event to the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM), will be held right in the center of the “Digital Health” sphere of MEDICA this year. MEDICA will take place from November 11 – 14, 2024 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Renowned experts will give inspiring talks at the MEDICA INNOVATION to initiate professional discussion among the over 8,000 forum participants expected to attend. One of the speakers   will be Prof. Stephen Gilbert of the Dresden University of Technology. He recently called for LLM-based generative chat tools such as ChatGPT and MedPaLM to be approved as medical devices. Robotics expert Lorenzo Masia, Heidelberg, and André Brauers, Global Head of Immersive and Digital Education Solutions at Siemens Healthineers, will also contribute topics for discussion.

The 13th MEDICA START-UP COMPETITION features a range of categories such as “AI in medicine”, “robotics”, “health apps”, “lab diagnostics” and “other”. The top 12 medical start-ups of 2024 will present their solutions at the pitch final (on November 12) at the MEDICA INNOVATION FORUM.

The HEALTHCARE INNOVATION WORLD CUP highlights the next generation of smart health devices, medical wearables, digital biomarkers, electroceuticals, smart plasters and more.
