"As a consequence of ICT developments, web-based e-health adaptability will be essential for survival of all players in the healthcare business."
"Genomics will cause the shift from cure to prevention, pushing us to "live up to our genes"."
Amsterdam is an international think tank which reflects our future:
How we want to live, communicate with each other and what tools and cities
we need, how we want to commute and how culture or industries should develop.
In short: what we want our future to be.
