Themed fortnight 08Health

The Covid-19 pandemic has raised several questions regarding the resources allocated to health services and research in health sciences. By 2030, the health sector will have to face numerous challenges that require a massive investment as of today.

Challenges of the Health themed fortnight

The Covid-19 pandemic has raised several questions regarding the resources allocated to health services and research in health sciences. The capacities of each country to address the health emergency are unequal. Such an acknowledgement should drive a massive investment in essential public health services. Efforts must be national but above all collective, as the pandemic has proved us that our world is deeply interconnected. 

By 2030, the health sector will have to face numerous challenges, including : the access to health services in all areas, the promotion health professions, the fight against health inequalities, the attractivty of public hospitals, the ageing of the populations, and the inclusion of disabled people.

Conclusions of the working group

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has deeply changed our lifestyles, forcing us to adapt our social interactions and increasing the use of digital channels. The technological acceleration linked to these changes is leading to a very strong growth of digital in all sectors. Organizations and governments have taken the full measure of the strategic importance of digital technology and Artificial Intelligence, which has led them to invest more and more sustainably in these areas. 

In this context, the Dubai World Expo 2020 is once again an opportunity for France to showcase its leadership in AI through its schools, its research, its ever-increasing number of startups and its leading companies in the main industries at the heart of societal and human development.

Through its Carnet de Dubai, the AI working group wanted to reflect France's potential in AI. The result is that France has an explainable, transparent and ethical Artificial Intelligence, capable of adapting and serving the major challenges of our society. 

" France and the rest of Europe have all the means at their disposal to establish themselves as leaders in this field, by building on their strong entrepreneurial dynamic and on a unique public-private collaborative model that brings together business, startups, research and teaching institutes, and government. "

Eric Labaye
President of Ecole polytechnique de Paris and Institut Polytechnique de Paris
