Nice, in the heart of the Health Europe
Welcome to Nice!
Welcome to the unique adventure of “Challenge For A Nice Life” !
Over the course of the past decade, the French Riviera has gained international recognition in paving the way for the use of global modeling and in launching new promising initiatives in the field of healthcare. With the support of citizens’ resilient capabilities joining forces together with a wide community of contributors such as hospitals, not-for- profit organizations, corporate and business networks, Nice features an array of modeling, ‘in vivo’ experimentation and validation facilities leveraging multiple scientific research platforms, positively impacting the life of our citizens, improving our residents’ living environment and fostering patient centered care. Strategically hosted in care and nursing homes, within the University Hospital or in Alzheimer special care units and even at the “27Delvalle’ connected healthcare building, the acclaimed success of these initiatives led Nice to add its voice to the concert of European Innovation.
Challenge for a Nice Life, is prompted by a collective cultural and philosophical conceptual vision. It embodies a participative mode of operation geared towards open innovation, inspiring everyone to take an active part in the innovation process, thus contributing to generate and launch a range of adapted versatile solutions across advanced fields such as artificial intelligence, “customized” medicine, mobility challenges, prevention and management of chronic diseases.
For each of the players either in our local, national ecosystem, or in international circles this is a unique opportunity to uncover and express one’s talents.
Best wishes to everyone, for your participation to this first edition of the “Challenge For A Nice Life”
