ESC and Radical Health Festival Helsinki Renew Partnership, Celebrating Continued Collaboration in May 2024 Festival


The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and Radical Health Festival Helsinki are delighted to announce the renewal of their partnership, ensuring a seamless continuation of their successful collaboration at the upcoming event scheduled for May 22nd-23rd, 2024, at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre.

ESC is a renowned organisation at the forefront of cardiology science and education, dedicated to reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases in Europe and beyond. Their expertise and commitment to advancing healthcare through innovation, agility, and creativity align perfectly with the goals of Radical Health Festival Helsinki.

Radical Health Festival Helsinki made its inaugural appearance in June 2023, receiving international acclaim for hosting groundbreaking discussions and engaging sessions that brought together policymakers, healthcare professionals, innovators, solution providers, journalists, and influencers from around the world. This event, driven by the idea "It's Critical to Be Radical," aims to transform healthcare, improve clinical and financial outcomes, and make health systems sustainable.

The 2024 edition of Radical Health Festival Helsinki, with the overarching theme 'Deploying Precision and Prevention at Scale,' promises to build upon its previous success. It will feature a diverse and thought-provoking programme with workshops, talks, and interactive experiences spanning topics from artificial intelligence to mental health and cybersecurity.

Gerhard Hendricks, Chair of the Digital Health Committee of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), remarks, "The collaboration with Radical Health Festival Helsinki is all about creating exciting new synergies and carving innovative, practical, and safe ways forward. Together, we are shaping the future with numerous groups from the digital health arena."

Pascal Lardier, the Festival's Programme Director, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "Between the Festival and the TEHDAS Stakeholder forum, we had over 1000 participants onsite in June 2023. We've heard from many that our inclusive and collaborative approach was refreshing, and that the genuine willingness to change an unsustainable status quo for improved outcomes was visible. It's the biggest compliment for us. We are thrilled to announce the second edition of an event made in Europe for Europe."

Helsinki, known for its commitment to innovation in health and social care, welcomes all those who seek to challenge traditional approaches. The city provides an ideal environment for digital health and well-being advancements.
