FUTURE HEALTH – MORNING BOOSTER: The Female Data Gap
Thursday, 25 August 2022 | 09:00 – 10:30 a.m.
Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society
Event by Berlin Innovation Agency in collaboration with
the Digital Urban Center for Aging and Health (DUCAH)
Invitation by the Foundation for Internet and Society
In our digital world, data is everything. But, despite the wealth of data out there, inequalities remain. Until a few years ago, “research was mainly conducted on male subjects with the results extended to women, assuming that the biological diversity had no significant repercussions on diseases.” (Giovannella Baggio, University of Padua). As more recent research shows, women are subjected to other health symptoms, such as recurrent hormonal issues and different chronic diseases. And research has only started tackling the lack of data recently.
Meet stakeholders from femtech startups, pharmaceutical companies, VCs, public entities, and government representatives to discuss the future of female health and how to reach more equality in research and data.
Each Morning Booster will put the spotlight on a current Future Health topic, kicking off with engaging impulses from innovators and thought leaders to open the stage for everyone to share ideas, discuss, interact and connect with each other.
