“Data and Data Science are probably the biggest growth areas in healthcare all-up. The fact that current technologies allow massive datasets to be analyzed at high speed enables tons of new scenarios. We are more than happy to support Data4Health as it brings together exactly these kind of organizations. As an ecosystem around healthcare and entrepreneurship, we focus on supporting entrepreneurs to get to the next level of growth. Collaborating with other ecosystems active in this area is of paramount importance” Tom Braekeleirs, Director at BlueHealth Innovation Center
