Already the first festival was a great success, so our expectations for next spring are high”, says Jolkkonen.

It will feature a diverse and thought-provoking programme with workshops, talks, and interactive experiences spanning topics from artificial intelligence to mental health and cybersecurity. The event, driven by the idea “It’s Critical to Be Radical,” aims to transform healthcare, improve clinical and financial outcomes, and make health systems sustainable.
