2017 Madrid


Advancing Knowledge from Big Data in Healthcare

December the 1st, 2nd & 3rd // SPAIN, MADRID


The Innovation Unit together UCI of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos (HCSC), one of the biggest public hospitals of the Madrid region and the Life Supporting Technologies (LifeSTech), one of the most important research group of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), have recently signed an agreement through which both institutions commit to jointly develop projects, solutions and initiatives aiming at transferring and deploying technological innovations in the clinical practice.


MIT - HCSC - UPM are bringing inter-professional critical care trainees and clinicians (from data novices to gurus), statisticians, data scientists and administrators together in the same room to tackle clinical problems with large datasets. 

The event will be split into Conference (December the 1st) and Datathon (Dec the 1st, 2nd and 3rd).

This datathon will generate patient-centred or service-centred projects and research which can be published in scientific journals and ultimately make a real difference to patients.
