September 19th, 2021, marked the end of Health Hub’s presence in the 85th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) after nine fruitful days of communication and networking at the stands of the Region of Thessaly and the University of Thessaly.
Looking back to those days, the 85th Thessaloniki International Fair proved to be a significant success. This outcome is attributed mainly to the organizers’ professionalism and the diligence that TIF participants and exhibitioners demonstrated towards the shared goal of a safe exhibition.
TIF showed the world that events of such magnitude can still take place even in times of crisis, setting the organizational bar for similar events in Europe. Leading by example, Greece sent a resonant message to the world about its economic and technological future in critical sectors like health.
The presence of Health Hub in 85th TIF
With the aim of the 85th TIF to bring citizens closer to new digital services and technologies, innovations, and Greek production, the candidate European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) Health Hub responded to the call for a more digital future by stating its presence at the exhibition.
Specifically, the visitors of TIF could find Health Hub at the stands of its valuable partners, the Region of Thessaly and the University of Thessaly. Our team informed the public about the Health Hub partnership and its vital task to digitize Greece’s Health and Pharma industry.
The interest in Health Hub was evident throughout the exhibition. It drew the attention of many notable Greek political figures who expressed their admiration and genuine interest in the project.
To name a few of those that visited the Health Hub stands and learned more about its work and future goals were:
- His Excellency Margaritis Schinas, Vice-President of the European Commission;
- Mr Thanos Plevris, Minister for Health;
- Ms Niki Kerameus, Minister of Education and Religious Affairs;

The role of Health Hub
Health Hub will play a prominent role in the digital transformation of Greece’s Health and Pharmaceutical Industry in the following years. The EDIH wants to bring about the revolution in the industry utilizing the capabilities provided by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve the health services provided to European citizens.
Health Hub will contribute to:
- Optimization of patient treatment & hospitalization
- Smart Clinical Decision Support Systems
- Improvement of the quality of results in the analysis of medical information (prognosis & diagnosis)
- Increase in the productivity of medical staff
- Reductions in the operating costs of health systems
Health Hub’s actions for the future
Health Hub’s ultimate aim is to become a one-stop shop that delivers digital transformation services to SMEs and public administrations of the health and pharma sector while supporting them to boost their outreach, precision, innovation capacity, and networking efforts.
Particularly, Health Hub’s participation in the 85th TIF comes to support the overall efforts by Health Hub to bring together the right people and organizations to create strong partnerships.
