Issues for discussionGeneral• The adoption diagram is it complete?• The diagram is reflecting a US state of play, what would the European diagram look like?• Which are the heaviest obstacles in the diagram in Europe• Are there winners and losers in this game or just winners?
Issues for discussionDoctors, patients & databases• Would it be possible that in PM present generation of medical doctors would become a ‘Lost Generation’?• What about patients and general awareness• We do need some immense databases to enable our doctors to diagnose patients with their laptops/ labs on a chip; – Would technology allow this – Would privacy allow us – Who’s task is the funding
Issues for discussionTechnology, funding andcost of health care• In accordance to US Experts in PM, technology will soon offer solutions to get to a break-through; is that in line with European thinking?• What about funding; are national governments and the EU sufficiently convinced of the added value of PM that funding keeps pace with progress... even in this Time of Crisis?• Will PM lead to an increase of cost efficiency and a decrease in costs for health care?
Issues for DiscussionEuroBioForum• Convergence of several S&T disciplines is crucial for PM to break through barriers and deliver its present promises; is EBF in its present form the right networking tool to [help] make all this come true?• Looking back for 10 years what should have been achieved by now but hasn’t?• What do you expect EBF to do for you and this event, does it live up to your expectations?
