Challenge the academic definition together: Entrepreneurship refers on the one hand to the exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities, as well as the creative and creative part in the entrepreneurial process, or a phase of active entrepreneurial change, and on the other hand to a scientific sub-discipline in business administration. The associated start-up research presents itself as an interdisciplinary research area.

Smart healthcare uses a new generation of information technologies, such as the internet of things (loT), big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, to transform the traditional medical system in an all-round way, making healthcare more efficient, more convenient, and more personalized. With the aim of introducing the concept of smart healthcare, in this symposium, we first list the key technologies that support smart healthcare and introduce the current status of smart healthcare in several important fields. Then we expound the existing problems with smart healthcare and try to propose solutions to them. Finally, we look ahead and evaluate the future prospects of smart healthcare.

 AMRUM ISLAND in the World Nature Heritage in the Waddensea

Amrum (Öömrang North Frisian: Oomram) is one of the North Frisian Islands on the German North Sea coast, south of Sylt Island and west of Föhr Island. It is part of the Nordfriesland district in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein and has approximately 2,300 inhabitants. The island is made up of a sandy core of geestland and features an extended beach all along its west coast, facing the open North Sea. The east coast instead borders to mud flats and tidal creeks of the Wadden Sea. Sand dunes are a characteristical part of Amrum's landscape, resulting in a vegetation that is largely made up of heath and shrubs. The island's only forest was planted in 1948. Amrum is a refuge for many species of birds and a number of marine mammals like grey seal or harbour porpoise. Settlements on Amrum have been traced back to the Neolithic when the area was still a part of the mainland of the Jutland peninsula. During the Middle Ages, Frisian settlers arrived at Amrum and engaged in salt making and seafaring. A part of the modern population still speaks Öömrang, a dialect of the North Frisian language, and Frisian traditions are kept alive.

By invitation only. Max. 150 participants

Location: Amrum Island @ North Sea / Germany

Language: German and English – the language of medicine

The Meaning of "SÜNJHAID" - since 2002
Posted December 1, 2021
SÜNJHAID! means in Fering, the language of the North Frisian islands of Föhr: HEALTH!  – according to the futurologist Leo A. Nefiodow, health is becoming a driving factor for the economy. Indicators suggest that the sixth long business cycle – “The Sixth Kondratieff” – health in the holistic sense – physically, mentally, mentally, ecologically & socially – will be the carrier of a long phase of prosperity in the 21st century. The goal of the founder: “Patient-centered navigation system for sustainable Medicine 4.0” and vision of the founder: “The patient will be the CEO of his Health”.
