Globally, nearly 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer. The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next two decades, according to the World Health Organisation, WHO.
In this seminar we address how Big Data and data analytics may transform the way cancer treatments are developed. Is the use and implementation of technology based on Big Data the key to treat cancer in the near future? What are the benefit for the cancer patients? How may start-ups contribute? Can Norway adopt the Finnish model?
Representatives from Innovation Norway and Research Council in Norway and and the private sector, will debate how the public and private sector may work together to maximize the potential Big Data represents to drive innovations within the cancer field.
The seminar is free and open for all.
Organisers: IBM, Oslo Cancer Cluster, Radiumhospitalets Forskningsstiftelse og Kreftforeningen.
This seminar is also part of Oslo Innovation Week and forskningsdagene.
