MedStar Innovators in partnership with Google for Startups

Innovative medical startups from around the world and global experts in health innovation will gather at the Google for Startups Campus in Warsaw on December 7, 2023, during the MedStar Innovators international conference organized in partnership with Google for Startups.

Registration is free of charge.

We want to share experiences and knowledge about how the rapid development of modern technology, especially artificial intelligence, is changing the way the medical industry operates. We are now confronted with innovations not only at the level of new treatments or novel tools, but also when making an appointment to see a specialist, processing sensitive data, or using equipment that facilitates the monitoring of chronic diseases.
