Professional Insights and Networking from your Couch: Join the Next Digital After Work @Fresenius Now!

Next event: 25th of August 2021 | Focus on: IT Security in MedTech

Networking & Knowledge Sharing During the Pandemic

Staying in touch with other professionals during the pandemic can be difficult. But with the Digital After Work @Fresenius, we aim to fill the void and create a new, virtual space where experts from different companies can still network & exchange ideas in a laid-back manner. Not in the same room. But during a joint Teams video conference – featuring a maximum of 30 participants to allow true networking and knowledge sharing.

Each After Work highlights a new focus topic and is kicked off by a different Fresenius department with related, hands-on insights from their daily work. After this short impulse, the stage is open for the external participants: During a relaxed, virtual gin tasting we have plenty of time to discuss the presented project, and other current challenges and trends in the industry.

All professionals and senior professionals interested in the focus topic are invited to join the upcoming event, exchange ideas and network. Did we spark your interest? Applying is simple! — All we need is a link to your business social media profile, to do a short check if your profile matches with the upcoming topic.

We’re looking forward to meeting you there!

Our Next Topic: IT Security in MedTech at Fresenius Medical Care

The next Digital After Work will give a thorough insight into the topics of the Global Digital Solutions and the Software and Digital Architecture Department at Fresenius Medical Care’s Global Research and Development Division.

Especially in health care, digitalization offers a myriad of opportunities – while at the same time, data protection and IT security are of utmost importance when handling sensitive patient data. Our colleagues will share different hands-on approaches on how they are overcoming these challenges and are fostering innovations while also setting new standards in IT and data security for our patients worldwide.
