EHTEL and its Innovation Initiative is proud to be visiting the Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark (Denmark) on 12/13 September 2018. The visitors will be introduced to Southern Denmark's innovation ideas and particularly the region's innovation lab. This will be a fantastic opportunity to find out more about what is happening in the region. EHTEL members can also share with personnel from the innovation centre and the Odense University Hospital what they themselves are doing in their own regions.
The meeting in Odense, Denmark on 12/13 September 2018 is primarily for EHTEL members and under invitation for all interested persons and  organisations - learn more and download registration form via this link

"Nothing beats meeting together face-to-face, exchanging and networking. Let's find out not only what is happening in innovation in the Region of Southern Denmark, but in regions as far afield as the Baltic Region, Galicia and Murcia in Spain, Oulu in Finland, and Paris, France." says Marc Lange, EHTEL  Secretary General.

The SEED awards hope to explore further this prize-giving work in the future, in conjunction with the Covenant on Demographic Change which is working towards an age-friendly Europe.
