KliniKaland - Adventures at the Clinic

The KliniKaland event is a new initiative, which is closely connected to the Innovations in Medicine Conference. We wanted to have a day when the lay public can get an insight into the future of medicine, can try out the newest innovations and can talk to the innovators.

Big and small companies joined the event: AbbVie, Novartis, AIPM, Richter, TEVA, Hand-in-Scan, Speeding, GE Healthcare, Synetiq all brought and talked about their exciting research. Patient advocacy groups (from oncology, hepatology, gastroenterology, psychiatry) have presented their daily challenges and successes.

The event took place at the Basic Research Centre of the Semmelweis University, which provided an open and futuristic environment.

My tasks included:

  • Creative concept setting of the whole event
  • Venue and vendor selection
  • Inviting technology and research companies
  • Inviting speakers
  • Fundraising
  • Hosting.
