On 10 June 2021 our member organisation MedTech Europe joined forces with EFPIA to hold a joint panel discussion on "Unlocking the power of health data: the promise of the European Health Data Space” (EHDS). The event included a keynote address by Ms Stella Kyriakides and a presentation on the EHDS by Ms Ioana-Maria Gligor, Head of Unit Digital Health.
