Life Science & Food

Telemedicine, digital therapeutics, artificial intelligence: both in diagnostics and patient care, digitalisation opens up new possibilities for treatment. How to use and apply these new opportunities will be discussed collaboratively with government, science, society and industry. The Life Science industry looks increasingly at what makes people healthy and how to keep people healthy and no longer only at how to cure the sick.

The same transformation is taking place in the Food industry. New robotics, sensing and AI tools allow targeted and efficient interventions in agricultural fields based on actual need. Food, beverage and consumer product production can be made more sustainable, safer and healthier for consumers.

The Life Science and Food sectors are converging with more and more focus on prevention and keeping people healthy and enabling healthy lifestyles. This Vertical aims to support ongoing initiatives, help identify gaps and launch new projects that are sustainable, human-centred and offer long-term viability.
