Innovative City, the international conference dedicated to the development of Smart Cities, is slowly releasing the program for this year’s conference June 16 and 17, 2016. Two prominent themes of this years conference will be connected health and the Silver Economy. There will be several discussions and demonstrations about these themes given by experts and representatives of local Côte d’Azur HealthTech start-ups such as Nively, DV Santé, Exact Cure, Accelis and Fettle.
These themes echo the Côte d’Azur’s desire to become the health hub of Europe by the year 2020 (see our article). The quality of the clinical testing and research in the Living Sciences have been recognized as the second best in France (CHU Nice). The region is not content with that ranking and is working to become a “European health city” (Cité Européenne de la Santé) and just last September unveiled its new “Living Lab.”
