Radical Health Festival Helsinki

Following the success of its previous edition, Radical Health Festival Helsinki returns to the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre on May 21 – 23, 2024. The theme for the event is “Deploying precision and prevention at scale”.

Time: 21 – 23 May 2024
Place: Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre (Messukeskus)


After an acclaimed edition in 2023, in which it held impactful discussions between policymakers, health professionals, innovators, journalists and influencers from around the world, the Radical Health Festival Helsinki returns for another opportunity to unite diverse perspectives on health matters.

Health systems around the world are now facing numerous challenges: ageing populations, increasing prevalence of cardio-metabolic conditions, workforce shortages and burnouts, rising healthcare costs, unsustainable financing systems, and health inequities. The future of healthcare lies at the intersection of prevention and precision. Deploying prevention and precision at scale represents a paradigm shift, which requires vision, leadership, change management and the need to be radical.

The Radical Health Festival Helsinki is a genuine and collaborative event resulting from the efforts of over 20 key European contributing partners.

With the tagline “It’s Critical to Be Radical,” the event is driven by the shared ambition to transform healthcare, deliver value, improve clinical and financial outcomes, and make health systems sustainable. The festival offers health innovation leaders and stakeholders a range of different workshops, talks, and interactive experiences that will cover topics ranging from artificial intelligence and healthy ageing to mental health and cybersecurity.

Radical Health Festival Helsinki provides carefully selected educational sessions led by influential healthcare leaders from around the world. The festival also counts with a diversity of partners in its content and formats: from high-level think tank discussions and startup pitch sessions to accredited professional development modules. In addition to exploring the latest trends in digital healthcare, Radical Health Festival Helsinki also addresses the pressing issues that the industry faces such as the aging population, pandemics, mental health problems, shortage of professionals and siloed information.

The Festival is a powerful platform to connect with the broader health innovation ecosystem, including policy-making authorities, public health agencies, hospitals and health systems, pharma and medtech groups, public and private insurers, major IT vendors as well as startups and entrepreneurs, investors, and more.
