February 5th: Creating research impact - dynamic collaborations between e-patients, researchers and innovators in academia and industry

Speakers: Niclas Nilsson, head of Open Innovation and Research platform at LEO Pharma, and Sara Riggare, PhD student at the Karolinska Institute and e-patient*

Niclas Nilsson and Sara Riggare will speak about creating dynamic collaborations between patients, researchers and innovators in academia and in industry.

Niclas Nilsson is head of Open Innovation and research platform at LEO Pharma, which aims to create synergy between pharma R&D and e.g. customer cocreation, social media, machine learning, business, digitalization and democratized crowd participation.

Sara Riggare is an engineer and a PhD student in health informatics, and introduced the concept “spetspatient” (e-patient) in Sweden. E-patients are active in their care and demonstrate the power of the Participatory Medicine or Health 2.0/Medicine 2.0 paradigm. The "e" can stand for "electronic" but has also been used to refer to other terms, such as "equipped", "enabled", "empowered" and "expert".  An e-patient is a health consumer who participates fully in his/her medical care, primarily by gathering information about medical conditions that impact them and their families, using the Internet and other digital tools. The term encompasses those who seek guidance for their own ailments and the friends and family members who go online on their behalf. E-patients report two effects of their health research: "better health information and services, and different, but not always better, relationships with their doctors." (Wikipedia)

March 5th: E-health in practice and research, opportunities and challenges

E-health is a new and emerging field applying the opportunities of digitalization, and entails all use of digital technology in health care. More and more people utilize electronic services to manage their health and wellbeing.

But as new digital solutions are developed and implemented, the need for research of the consequences for health care system and for society at large increases. The effects can be unexpected and are not necessarily only positive.

Speaker: Gudbjörg Erlingsdottír, Associate Professor and Coordinator of the research platform E-health@LU, Faculty of Engineering
