The End of "One Size Fits All"
A wide range of megatrends are driving a change in our healthcare system and our approach to health in general. Today, genomics is a diverse and complex field, but what can we expect from the future? The challenges are both big and broad and do require efforts from a wide range of actors. In order to successfully discover the potential of genomics, a gathering of different perspectives is key.
The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies is proud to announce the forthcoming conference on March 18th 2016: "Genomics of the Future – The 360° Perspective", with expert talks from Bogi Eliasen (CIFS), David Bentley (Illumina), Roald Forsberg (Qiagen), Jan Egebjerg (Lundbeck), Ellen Thomas (Genomics England), and Mickey Gjerris (Ethical Council Denmark).The event will be held in English and will be chaired by Peter Høngaard Andersen, CEO, Innovation Fund, Denmark. See the entire programme here.
Besides talks and lectures given by a wide range of subject-matter experts, CIFS offers a platform to apply the tools and insights from the field of futures studies in five individual break-out sessions. Participants will get a chance to work hands-on within the frameworks of horizon scanning, megatrends, and scenario-planning.
