MedTech World Summit 2022: Significant Presence and Potential Cooperations

23.12.2022 | THD-Pressestelle

The MedTech World Summit 2022 took place in Malta this year. Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan participated in the event as the representative of the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI), as a speaker, and host, and laid the ground for a possible future cooperation with the University of Malta during the summit.

Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan - the coordinator of the Master of Digital Health at ECRI - was invited to chair and host two panel discussions with participation by several distinguished experts and leaders. The panel on the first day of the MedTech was titled “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Data” and explored the risks of bias and unethical use of data, as well as the necessary approaches to ensuring the equitable and ethical usage of healthcare artificial intelligence. The second panel on the following day named “The AI Clinician” provided invaluable insights into the future of the artificial intelligence applications in healthcare, the hurdles and limitations to their use, and their potential in transforming the healthcare practices. Both panels received significant interest by the audience and very positive acclaims.

In between the informative congress sessions, Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan met with a number of peers and fellow-professionals, and established a good ground for a very promising collaboration between ECRI, and important digital health actors. In particular, he had an extensive discussion with his colleagues at the University of Malta who have also launched a master’s program in Digital Health one year ago. The academics from both institutions decided to explore potential cooperation aspects, to jointly advance the digital health education in Europe and worldwide.

The Malta MedTech World Summit – Connecting the Future of Healthcare, focuses on the leading innovations in emerging tech revolutionising the European medical ecosystem. With nearly 3,000 attendees, hundreds of exhibitors, and dozens of top-ranked experts in attendance, the forum provided an exciting view into the current state and the future of digital health in Europe and globally.
