The Estonian Research Council in cooperation with Estonian Public Broadcasting are inviting fifteen international journalists to Science visit “Health Technologies 2.0” to explore Estonian health technology research, from 25–27 May 2016.
Estonian researchers are key players in solving problems like infertility, aging population and the lack of quality food. They also deal with challenges like cattle health and breeding efficiency, personalized usage of genetic information, ownership and security of health data. With ever growing global emphasis on prevention of medical problems and development of non-invasive health technologies, it’s easy to see that Estonian health and ICT researchers have their hands full.
On the three days of the trip, journalists will meet with outstanding medical and ICT researchers in Estonian universities and will visit places like Estonian Genome Center and Research Centre of Organic Farming. In addition, the journalists will have a chance to interview researchers on site and meet with Estonian journalists to swap ideas.
