Delivered by EPIC, the Meet the World series of events are fully-funded webinars. 

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), EPIC is a £4 million project led by the University of Plymouth’s Centre for Health Technology

EPIC provides sector-specific support for local businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to develop new eHealth products and services that will not only create new jobs and support the local economy, but create truly useful innovations to improve quality of life and boost wellbeing for many.

With foreign travel currently unavailable as an option for businesses to network globally, EPIC is bringing businesses and organisations together from around the globe in a series of online events to share ideas about eHealth solutions. 

The Meet the World events series will take place at 10am BST every Tuesday and Thursday for four weeks from 13 April 2021.

From telehealth and robotics to digital therapeutics and blockchain, each event in the Meet the World series explores an area of eHealth with speakers and/or demonstrations of tech innovations from Israel, UAE, Spain, Finland, Switzerland, Australia and the UK. The last event, led by Bishop Fleming, one of the UK’s leading accounting firms, will draw together the threads from across the series and address the key ideas and issues that have been raised.

From established tech businesses interested in the eHealth sector to startups and individuals considering developing new or existing technology, these events will explore global and national markets and an array of opportunities for businesses across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. By bringing together a range of stakeholders (including health and care professionals, commissioners and SMEs) with a shared drive to improve health and care, EPIC aims to facilitate conversations that will lead to effective solutions to the health and care challenges faced by society.
