Industry sponsored programme

Pharmaceutical and healthcare technology companies organize a high level scientific programme under the heading “Industry sponsored programme” on Monday and Tuesday.
Other healthcare professionals: due to stricter medical marketing laws in Finland in effect after the preliminary programme was published and registration opened, some of the industry sponsored satellite symposia are for medical doctors only. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Learn more about how the pharmaceutical and healthcare technology innovations can help advancing the wellness and care of patients. Network and share your insights with your peers. Take advantage of the opportunity and participate – programmes are listed below.
