Dissemination workshop, 31 Oct 2006, Rikshospitalet, Oslo
A better life –a longer life? Intimate collaboration between innovative technologies, on the body - in the body, in the hands of the doctor – in your own hands. Will knowledge about the smallest building blocks in life combined with new technologies, often invisible, change our conditions in life, expectations and health care? How will next generations homo sapiens improve, reset, prevent, renew and treat the different parts of the body? What are the possibilities and threats, where are the business opportunities?
