The PreciDIAB Initiative Day – March 21, 2019

On March 21, 2019, the launch day of the PreciDIAB Initiative industrial club was held within the European Institute of Diabetes Genomics (EGID) in Lille.

During this event, we welcomed more than 70 participants, industrialists, scientists and representatives of the institutions involved in the PreciDIAB project.

Thanks to a strong mobilization of industrial partners, all of the diabetes research sectors that were represented: well-being and health, nutrition, e-health and artificial intelligence, medical devices, drugs, and many others.

A big thank you to all for your participation in this day rich in exchange, and which presages many collaborative projects.

For those who weren’t there, here is a video of the must-see moments of the day!
