E4H 1st Annuel Forum - Programme

Institut Polytechnique de Paris is organizing the first edition of its annual Engineering for Health Forum. This two-day event aims at shedding light onto ongoing research projects and presenting the next challenges related to Engineering and Health. The Forum will encompass 2 major events:

  • July 6th - Academic symposium : The one-day academic symposium on engineering & health aims to gather researchers, medical doctors, and engineers to stimulate new interactions and create more synergies.  The event is in partnership with Fondation Bettencourt Schueller and Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group. A poster exposition will be organized.
  • July 7th - Launch of the IP Paris Engineering for Health Center on the afternoon : Finally on the afternoon of July 7th, there will be the official launch of the new IP Paris Engineering for Health (E4H) interdisciplinary research center  in partnership with Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group  and Inria

The events on the 6th will be in English, while the launch event will be in French. Registration is free but compulsory for the events, and seats are limited.

On this occasion, Institut Polytechnique de Paris will host the 1st edition of the "Thursdays" of Paris Saclay Cancer Cluster (PSCC), a consortium created by several actors, including IP Paris, to support and accelerate translational research projects to fight against cancer. Register to the PSCC event.
