Every year since 2007, the world of health and innovation meets in Castres-Mazamet for two days of immersion in eHealth.
A time for interdisciplinary meetings bringing together groups as diverse as telecommunications operators, patients, big data, funders and regulators, and, of course, healthcare institutions and professionals. This year, the eHealth University will celebrate the 15th edition of its summer university programme by tackling the issue of how obstacles to eHealth can be lifted.
“eHealth: the end of lockdown!” is not just the programme’s theme, but a call to all stakeholders and operators to unlock their potential.
Indeed – and the global health crisis that has been ongoing for the last year demonstrates this every day – it is time to lift the obstacles to eHealth and allow it to play its rightful role in the different healthcare systems and patient care journeys.
The eHealth University’s 2021 summer school programme will focus on different topics, such as:
This year, for the first time, the summer school to be held on September 23 and 24 will not only be a summer meeting for eHealth decision-makers and actors, but also a starting point for a new adventure: a university open 360 days a year, anchored in a territory committed to innovation.

In addition to the category-based awards (patients, healthcare and medico-social institutions, healthcare professionals, innovative technologies, disability, etc.), four special trophies will be awarded at the end of the day:
The Internauts’Prize, awarded after an online vote by web users once the finalists have pitched their project online:
The Jury’s Favourite Award;
The Jury’s Grand Prize;
And, for the first time, the Business Model Award
Intended to bring all the key players in innovation in the region of the greater Castres-Mazamet’s area and elsewhere together with major clients (industry, healthcare institutions, authorities, etc.), the business convention is at the heart of the eHealth University’s DNA, along with the summer programme’s venues and informal gatherings.
Organized by ABE, a European leader in business conventions, with the support of the EEN (Entreprise Europe Network), Occitania’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the business convention provides a friendly and professional atmosphere for more than 300 high-quality meetings in each of its editions.
More than 440 videos, from the eHealth cloud to DTx, including telemonitoring of heart failure, eHealth financing in Dubai, connected healthcare objects, and from biological markers to digital markers, as well as the uberization of state healthcare services, trace close to 10 years of the history of eHealth and healthcare until today.
