VLC-Health ecosystem last open event took place on the 28th November at "Centro de Investigación Principe Felipe" (CIPF), in Valencia. The meeting was conceived as the continuation of the "Digital Health and Cognitive Decline meeting: challenges and solutions" meeting that was held last July. The purpose was to deepen into the proposals that would appear as more effective and immediate in our ecosystem. About 30 people registered.

After a brief explanation of the objectives of the meeting, presented by Antonio Cano (University of Valencia, UVEG), Elena Rocher (Las Naves), Oscar David Sánchez (CIPF) and Vicente Traver (SABIEN-ITACA), moderators in the previous July meeting, explained the conclusions of the last session. After that, the attendants were divided into two working tables, one focusing on Prevention and the other on Treatment. There was prioritisation of the ideas proposed in the July meeting and detection of the actors and means that would be needed to materialise those previous proposals.

Both groups found that the most urgent issue is to have a virtual platform where all the local stakeholders can meet each other. The goal is to try to implement it during 2018. Finally, Javier Gámez (OPESVAL) explained the calls that the different administrations are offering for collaborative projects.
