Health: Anticipating Risks of the Decades to Come
The mission of MIG is to develop meetings and partnerships / long-term cooperation between French and Israeli scientists and between French and Israeli companies.
With three very successful editions in 2016, 2018 and 2022, Meet in Galilee, a NGO, organizes on the model of Aix en Provence, the fourth edition of the medico-economic forum and the Lyric Art Festival.
On the scientific level and in partnership with Imagine, the medico-economic forum will take place in June 2nd, 2024.
This is a great opportunity for Israeli companies and decision-makers, but it is also a great opportunity to meet French institutions like the leaders of INSERM and to establish with them proximity links.
In 2024 the theme will be Health: Anticipating Risks of the Decades to Come
Objective of the Symposium: We have entered a moment of global instability that requires assessing the health, social, and political risks that may affect the health of specific populations or the global population due to the interconnection of systems. Instability entails risks of various kinds, depending on their environmental origin (water, heat, infectious diseases, human migrations), shortages of health products resulting from deindustrialization, cyber threats (intellectual property infringement and economic value of R&D, attacks on digital systems crucial for surveillance, care, and response to health crises), increasing longevity and societal management of healthcare systems, and the resurgence of warfare.
The symposium aims to bring together and mix the perspectives of health risk specialists from academic and industrial backgrounds. The topics covered may address the following questions, each with a format of assessing the current situation and anticipating future developments:
• Water management (drinking, sanitation, agriculture)
• Known and emerging infectious diseases (vaccines, new therapeutic approaches)
• Essential molecules, products, and equipment (manufacturing, storage, availability)
• Digital health systems
The symposium begins at 8:30 am and concludes at 4:00 pm.
Roundtable discussions allow each speaker 15 minutes.
