Day 2 (Wednesday 8th of June):

Let’s think science together!

In short, A-Patch is a 3 years long research project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. In A-Patch, we have worked on the development of a point-of-care technology for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. More specifically, we created a sticker patch to be applied for the patient’s arm. Containing a pouch of absorbing material, the patch collects compounds released through the skin.

We will dive into topics related to the world of e-health, tuberculosis, health equity and responsibility of health research and innovation. The event will be a space for open discussion among invited panelists, experts and general attendees who are join the conversation on-site or virtually from different parts of the world.

All sessions of the seminar are open to the public and participation is free of costs.

Can’t make it to the seminar? Don’t worry, the seminar is recorded and we provide an opportunity to watch the recording on YouTube until the 22nd of June 2022!
