Time & Location
Nov 10, 2020, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
STELLA is a collaborative, co-creative ecosystem umbrella of global partners in health, spanning industries, sectors, stakeholders, and fields of expertise.
The Centre of Excellence is co-founded by the University of Basel Innovation Office and Novartis, in close collaboration with the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.
STELLA aims to address health systems challenges in low- and middle-income countries by leveraging a critical mass of competencies and applying innovative health data-based solutions while supporting local entrepreneurship and ownership.
This event serves as the official launch of the STELLA Center of Excellence. It is intended to be largely virtual with a small in-person gathering on the Novartis Campus in Basel, by local invitation.SPEAKERS
