Drug adherence, changing lifestyle habits, patient interaction or simply acquiring new knowledge can be difficult tasks for every individual. Who hasn’t lost motivation when trying to implement new year’s challenges? However, the issue of adherence and motivation are particularly difficult to steer from a provider’s side.
In 2003, the World Health Organization estimated that only about 50% of patients with chronic diseases living in developed countries follow treatment recommendations. A 2014 literature review from the Cochrane Library suggests that the figures have not improved.
Therefore, technologies and ideas from the gaming industry have recently become more and more prominent in the field of life science and healthcare. During this session, we will discover how the knowledge of the gaming industry can be used for medical purposes. The session will have a look into the underlying systematic and new technologies of gaming, showcase three successful examples of gaming in health and leave enough room for discussion of new applications.
The session is organised in cooperation with media:net berlin-brandenburg and the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin (HTW, University of Applied Science Berlin).
Moderator: Martin Steinicke, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin

Discussion with the panel and audience
Rethinking Industries – Biobased Products and Bioeconomy
Dependence on fossil raw materials is still widely spread throughout the industry. For example, most cars are still running on fossil fuel, plastic is mainly derived from fossil energy carriers and energy itself is mostly generated by nonrenewable resources. But the depletion of these raw materials in the near future, the ambitious goals of minimizing the impact on climate change and findings in various research fields opened the door towards new biobased products. This progress will lead to a more sustainable future and eventually to a biobased economy. Aiming towards higher visibility and raising awareness of the possibilities of biobased industries in the capital region, the session will outline novel biobased products and techniques setting the path towards a biobased economy.

Pharma or Biotech product development is complex and needs a variety of knowledge and experiences. If you do not have the expert needed in-house you can contract specialist support. What are typical assignments and where do you find these experts?
In this session expert consultants will present real life examples of their work.
They are members of CONELIS – the Competence Network Life Sciences. CONELIS is an association of selected, independent experts providing top-tier consulting services to the life sciences industry. CONELIS was founded 10 years ago in Berlin.
