Innovation for Health 2021


WTC Rotterdam / online

09.00 - 17.00

On 15-16 April 2021, the 8th edition of Innovation for Health takes place as a hybrid edition. Innovation for Health is the meeting place where over 900 bright minds from across Health and Life Sciences come together to shape the future of healthcare.

What can you expect from Innovation for Health 2021?

The theme of this year's Innovation for Health conference is Immunology, a topic that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, has never been more relevant. With our energizing programme, we bring over 40 speakers to the stage, display high impact innovations, highlight best practices, and demonstrate inspiring developments in healthcare. Inspiring, interacting, and networking are at the centre of the conference.

Hybrid edition

The 2021 edition of Innovation for Health will be a hybrid conference. On April 15th, visitors can attend it live at the WTC in Rotterdam or via our online streaming platform. However, the second conference day on April 16th is going to take place via a virtual meeting space. By taking the conference online, we make it easily accessible for you to join from wherever you are.

Global Investors Forum 2021

Global Investors Forum offers 30+ start-ups, scale-ups, and TTO's who are looking for investments, partnerships, and exposure the opportunity to present and pitch their healthcare innovation to key players in Health and Life Sciences. GIF takes place on 18 March 2021 in conjunction with Innovation for Health on 15-16 April 2021. During this conference, the winning GIF pitches get the chance to pitch again.
