The Action Line Health and Wellbeing showcased its achievements at the fourth edition of the Health Tech Event that took place on November 24th, 2015. The event was organised together with Jakaijima which organises the annual Health Tech Events at the High Tech Campus, Eindhoven.
The event conference was successful, attracting over 200 international delegates and provided great intellectual and social interaction for the participants. This means that the mission was accomplished to reach a broader audience and to create more visibility for the achievements of the Action Line Health and Wellbeing.
Top speakers from renowned companies and educational institutions delivered interesting insights into topics related to Health and Wellbeing. The event also included an exhibition, where the attendees could see real life solutions of the technologies discussed during the conference.
