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.
