The fourth meeting with European Parliament Members was held in hybrid mode on March 21, 2023, on the premises of the European Parliament hosted by MEP Stelios Kympouropoulos with the support of the European Alliance of Medical and Biological Engineering and Science (EAMBES) as part of a week dedicated to the role of technology in health. The event was entitled: “Pandemic Management and Preparedness – Telemedicine and the Role of Innovative Technologies in Securing a Safer Future”.  Please find here the final Agenda of the meeting.

The policy event aimed to pave the way for experts and policymakers to strengthen their dialogue, ensure collaboration between stakeholders and ensure that the EU will exit the pandemic stronger, more resilient, and more autonomous than before.

In the first part, the event aimed to identify the “lessons learned” from the pandemic, in regard to telemedicine and other health technologies used during this period, in order to highlight various best practices followed. In the second panel, the event yielded the floor to medical technology experts in order to explore efficient measures to prepare for the next health crisis in Europe.
