VSC Industry Road Tour: HPC meets Health - a collaboration between uHasselt Data Science Institute, BioVille and Van Havermaet Medici.

As the volume of data available to the health industry grows, so do the opportunities to make ground-breaking medical discoveries and introduce transformational value for patients. Supercomputing has already demonstrated its added value, across the health spectrum from prevention to early diagnosis to finding the best-tailored treatment options and restoring health.

As part of the VSC Industry Road Tour, The Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC - Vlaams Supercomputer Centrum) organizes a live networking session themed around health.

The network session will take place on June 27th 2022 at Campus Diepenbeek.

During the session, Tine Lewi (Janssen R&D) and Liesbet Peeters (UHasselt) will illustrate, via inspiring use cases, how supercomputing can/will play an increasingly important role to accomplish the digital transformation in the healthcare industry.
