Bits & Beers

WHINN Bits and Beers asserts itself for the fifth year in a row as the gathering place to be – both in a professional as well as personal way – and kick-offs the WHINN Conference 2019. The event attracts private companies, entrepreneurs, public decision makers and others, who seek to expand their network and get new insights to the newest trends in technology.

WHINN Bits & Beers is an atypical after work event, which is positioned as a run-up event. Event participation is prioritised by national and international profiles within the health- and welfare technology sector. It offers a unique opportunity to combine business and pleasure while you get new insights to the newest trends in technology.

The 2019 edition of WHINN Bits & Beers will centre around six innovative companies working on the latest technology in health. The set-up is informal with its combination of business and pleasure. The event will be held from 7pm at the Anarchist microbrewery where you can buy a chilled beer brewed by the brewmasters of Anarchist, while sounds from the Dj spice up the atmosphere.

During the evening committed and impassioned speakers will present short bites of their findings and central take aways. Talks are short, being held to 10 minutes, and have different focuses – some are focusing on technical standards in it-solutions, others are focusing on the implementation and usage of technology – however, all topics are identified as important factors to the healthcare and care providers as well as the companies in question.

This year, the event will zoom in on intelligent healthcare devices and the ethical dilemmas. What are the gains and pains - the challenges and potentials for both citizens, the healthcare sector and the private companies?
