Fact-finding mission in the UK for Swiss companies

Real-world data and healthcare: business and R&D opportunities
24-25 June 2019, London and surroundings

The United Kingdom is the leading nation for life science in Europe, together with Switzerland. In addition to a very high density of world leading Life Science companies and research institutions, the UK’s unique characteristic is its National Health System (NHS).

Fact-finding mission in the UK for Swiss companies

The imperative to modernise the NHS, through innovation and digitisation, translated into impressive funding announcements: £475 million granted for the NHS digitisation, increase of £20.5bn of the NHS yearly budget etc.

Her Majesty’s government has also clearly stated its ambition for the UK to become the world leader for personalised medicine by granting access to data for the most advanced research to be implemented in the UK.

This conjunction of factors generate a wealth of opportunities for business and R&D collaborations.

This mission has been conceived for Swiss companies innovating at the interface of advanced analytics of real-world data and life science:

  • Innovative solutions that could improve operational efficiency for the NHS
  • Innovations impacting the delivery of care with the aim of “bringing the NHS to the patient”
