Event Details

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Is Finland well positioned to be a top player in healthcare and well-being? The social and healthcare reform will change the administration and management of healthcare services. Finland must utilize this opportunity to rethink the objectives of the system and improve its pharmaceutical innovation ecosystem. What role must innovation play in Finland’s evolving healthcare system? How does innovation secure Finland’s future in the healthcare space? To answer these questions and more Bristol Myers Squibb, Amcham Finland, and the U.S. Embassy Helsinki welcome you to an Innovation in Healthcare Breakfast at the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence, Itäinen Puistotie 14B, Helsinki.
