Welcome to Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare 2014!

The KES International Conference on Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare (InMed-14) will gather a multi-disciplinary group consisting of researchers and engineers, managers, students and practitioners from the medical arena, to discuss the ways that innovation, knowledge exchange and enterprise can be applied to issues relating to medicine, surgery, healthcare and the issues of an ageing population.

A central theme of the conference will be Smart Medical and Healthcare Systems which will cover the ways in which modern intelligent systems contribute to the solution of problems faced by healthcare and medical practitioners today, addressing the application of these systems through all of the strands of the event.

The Location

The conference will take place in the city of San SebastiŠn or Donostia, a vibrant city presiding over the beautiful Bay of Biscay in the North of Spain, near the border with France. Donostia is an important city of commerce and tourism in the heartlands of the Basques and is proud of its Basque traditions and language. The city may be more familiar to the outside world through its Spanish name, San SebastiŠn, site of the famous annual San SebastiŠn International Film Festival. The agreeable climate and the scenic views have long proved a draw for many visitors, from ordinary families to international film stars. In recognition of this, the city has been selected as European Capital of Culture for 2016 (jointly with Wroclaw, Poland).

The Organisers

InMed'14 is organised by KES International in partnership with the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU and the Institute of Knowledge Transfer.
