Health4Growth: 'Incubating innovative entrepreneurship in healthcare'

Supported by Leuven.Inc and KU leuven 

On 23 and 24 September 2013, the City of Leuven and Thomas More / City of Turnhout organize the workshop “Incubating innovative entrepreneurship in healthcare”. Explore local and international good practices and get inspired by personal experiences of different stakeholders and entrepreneurs within health care in this two-day workshop.

This two-day workshop provides a platform for discussion and networking and will bring together stakeholders from academia, industry, service providers and government as well as international Health4Growth partners.

The event is part of the European Union’s Interreg IVC Health4Growth project, which aims to improve the effectiveness of regional development policies regarding the operational environment of local and regional economic players within health care.
We look forward to your participation! You are most welcome to join for the full programme, but you can also sign up for individual events.
