Held each year in the German capital region of Berlin-Brandenburg, Health Week aims to spotlight life sciences and healthcare industry innovations achieved by local enterprises. The region, and Berlin in particular, have a unique concentration of research institutions, businesses, and hospitals, including many technology parks. This gives the area an ideal infrastructure for developing the latest research findings rapidly into innovative healthcare products.
Health Week additionally provides a platform for discussing important aspects and challenges of healthcare with national and international experts. Its international highlight – the World Health Summit (WHS) – brings together key leaders from academia, politics, civil society, and the private sector from all over the world.
