EPIC Conference

Back to top

Creative England held an end of year showcase conference to celebrate the University of Plymouth-led EPIC project and to explore the future of eHealth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

During the full day event we showcased the innovations created by the EPIC cohort and featured a series of exciting panel discussions with industry leaders from the eHealth and wellbeing sector. We covered topics such as people first technology, eHealth opportunities and challenges – including how Trusts will capitalise on emerging health tech and cutting-edge research – and collaborative practice and emerging opportunities within the eHealth industry. We also reflected on the EPIC programme, the impact it has made to the region and the impact and ambitions for the future.
