Wennberg international collaborative
Spring policy meeting 2018

We are delighted to announce that the Wennberg International Collaborative (WIC) Spring Policy Meeting will take place in Zurich, bringing together Swiss and international healthcare experts, and linking researchers and policy makers in the healthcare field.

The Wennberg International Collaborative Spring Policy Meeting is hosted by the Wennberg International Collaborative, the National Research Program 74 «Smarter Health Care», and the Swiss School of Public Health.

This meeting follows up on the very successful health services research symposia organized by the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences and the Gottfried und Julia Bangerter-Rhyner-Foundation between 2012 and 2017. Although we can accept more registrations than in previous years, register for the WIC Spring Policy Meeting in Zurich soon because it may be booked as quickly as in previous years.

On April 12-13, 2018, Zurich will become the hotspot for ambitious and future health scientists, policy-makers, and entrepreneurs. Are you one of them?

Here are a few reasons why you should attend the conference:

  • Engage in debates about how to build smarter health care systems
