Social Lab 7 – Workshop 2

Date: 22 and 23 November 2018

Place: Milan, Italy


We started the workshop off by discussing participation of patients and citizens at different stages of the R&I process as an important cross-cutting theme in all three pilots. We were glad to benefit from the contributions of our three guests from Fondazione Telethon and Bassetti Foundation. During the second day, we focused on developing our pilots further.
