Program for the 6th edition of the vintura life sciences and healthcare event

Theme: Creating Meaningful Impact in Healthcare Together
Date: November 10th, 2016

Together with our partners in healthcare and life sciences we aim to achieve real impact in healthcare. The theme of the 6th edition of the annual Vintura Life Sciences and Healthcare event is Creating Meaningful Impact in Healthcare Together, as the event is an important step towards achieving this goal. The purpose of the event is to inspire, to encourage co-creation and to promote informal meetings between like-minded individuals. During this event we will focus on significant improvements in healthcare and how we can take these improvements to the next level.



Initiatives that have made a significant impact in the healthcare sector were able to register for the event until September 30th. A panel of expert judges selects the top three initiatives, who will then give a presentation on November 10th. In three parallel round-table debates, the participants, judges and everyone involved will offer advice and choose the winner of the extra boost offered by Vintura. This extra boost is a €10,000 prize and five Vintura Consultancy Days to help further develop or scale up the initiative.


*Close to 15 teams with unique and innovative initiatives registered for the competition. These teams include NKI-ALV, AMC, UMCU, ZGT, Healthy Solutions (J&J), patient associations and several start-ups. These teams have one important thing in common: they have all led to actual and significant improvements in patient care and can be put to wider use.


The event will be held at a central location in a venue that inspires interaction:

  • 16.00-16.30 Reception (with coffee and tea)
  • 16.30-16.45 Opening speech
  • 16.45-17.45 Presentations of initiatives plus feedback

  • 18.45-19.00 Voting by all event participants
  • 19.00-20.00 Networking drinks and buffet
  • 19.30-19.40 Award ceremony

**The interactive debate consists of round-table discussions of 30 minutes per case. The aim is to discuss the value of each initiative and how it can be made even more successful. Each group will report their findings in a plenary session.
