Immerse UK is partnering with the IET, Hatsumi VR and the Knowledge Transfer Network to bring you this interactive event that will explore how technologists and engineers can help shape future healthcare.

When and where

Thursday 28 November 2019 | 9:00-17:00

IET | Birmingham


Think Big Future Health and Science Unconference is a participant-driven event, bringing engineers together with clinicians, senior/middle managers, healthcare professionals, patients and non-industry stakeholders to:

  • discuss important themes in healthcare technology,
  • share personal experiences,
  • embrace new thinking,
  • experiment with new approaches to tackle the challenges faced by the healthcare sector.

The outputs of your discussions will help us to shape the IET’s strategy for supporting the health and care system that empowers people to lead healthier and more independent lives.  Your collective knowledge will shape the future agenda of programmes and activities for engineers, technologists, and all healthcare professionals.
