About the Summit
The first Europe's Tomorrow: Vaccination and Prevention Summit will be an opportunity for policymakers, health experts, young people, start-ups, and civil society organisations to come together and discuss the challenges in the area of vaccinations and prevention both at European and Member State Level. The Summit will also aim to spotlight youth voices with respect to vaccines and prevention, connecting the views of young people with high-level stakeholders in the healthcare industry and related policy fields. The Summit will consist of a series of panel discussions and will also host an exhibition space for start-ups that work on vaccination and prevention.
