Blockchain  and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT)  in general, alongside Artificial Intelligence  and Internet of Things , are increasingly recognized as transformational technologies for the Health sector.
In the first session you will get an introduction about DLTs such as Blockchain and Tangle. IOTA Foundation develops the Tangle, which overcomes the limitations of conventional Blockchain, and opens a new landscape of opportunities for eHealth cross silo data exchanges, connected care, MyData/GDPR among others.
The H2020 matchmaking workshop in the second session of this event will provide an opportunity to clusters, SMEs and industrial giants to pitch their project ideas to form the consortia for accelerating Blockchain and eHealth proposals.

- You are an eHealth researcher or innovator, biopharma/IT SME and recognize the need to stay ahead of this new wave of digital innovation.
- You are a decision maker from public or private sector and want to cut through the hype, assess the potential and state of maturity of DLTs and determine how to position your eHealth ecosystem.
