Tackling global health challenges with deep tech – CERN Global Health Workshop

Day 1 – Current Challenge 4

Day 1 Environment – CC 4

May 27, 2024

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Event description

CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, pushes the frontiers of technology for the benefit of fundamental research.

The transfer of CERN technologies and expertise to society is an integral part of these activities, providing novel solutions in many fields, which have positive impact on our lives, including in the health sector.

In partnership with the Geneva Health Forum, CERN is therefore organising the workshop to identify new applications of deep-tech technologies in global health, and co-development of novel research ideas among the participants from a wide range of backgrounds. The workshop will bring relevant stakeholders together to delve into some of the most pressing global health challenges proposed by international organisations working in the field. Topics addressed are related to the main themes of the 2024 GHF.

After a description of CERN’s knowledge transfer, the 5 projects that will be worked on at the workshops will be presented

  • Safe medical data management for LMICs and people on the move
  • Affordable and accessible diabetes management tools
  • Correlation between climate change and perinatal health
  • Occupational safety of health care professionals from radiation exposure
  • Improvement of the management of malaria and related factors

About the Geneva Health Forum

Established in 2006 by the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) and the University of Geneva (UNIGE), the Geneva Health Forum (GHF) is a Swiss not-for-profit initiative that brings together a diverse range of stakeholders to discuss and address global health challenges.

The GHF plays a pivotal role in the global health landscape, as a neutral and inclusive platform, fostering dialogue and collaboration among key players in the field, including policymakers, representatives from academia, civil society, and the private sector.

Its core mission is to facilitate constructive dialogue among these global health actors, which, in turn, contributes to the improvement of health policies and access to care worldwide. The Geneva Health Forum proudly collaborates with some of the most prominent international organizations based in Geneva.
