Life Sciences Week in Basel

With the five different formats of Basel Life and Intelligent Health, a number of  life sciences events were staged simultaneously in the CCB in the second week of September.

Two thousand participants from 68 countries, including 100 speakers visited Intelligent Health 2019, which was held on 11 and 12 September in the Congress Center Basel (CCB). The global health summit returned to Basel to focus on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI). The central question was how AI can be used to solve the world’s biggest health problems.

At the same time as Intelligent Health, Basel Life was also staged at the CCB. This combined event, which unites several different formats, presents Europe’s excellence in the life sciences. With the merger of the former Bio Valley Life Sciences Week and MIPTEC, professional visitors are now able to visit EMBO, a scientific conference on basic research, BC2, a bioinformatics event, Innovation Forums, MIPTEC, an industry exhibition and the European Job Fair.

Finally, the Day One conference was held on 9 September on the new campus of the FHNW University of Applied Sciences in Muttenz. Under the motto “Shaping the Future of Health”, more than 400 researchers and physicians from various disciplines, together with patients, met up to define new approaches to health research involving digital transformation.
