Leaders across education, workforce, health, and impact sectors came together in London in the 11th event of our Global Impact Summits Series.

After an illuminating week at COP27 and a focus on the MENA region in Cairo, HolonIQ’s Global Impact Summits continued into the first of our European events, starting in London. During a thoughtful day of discussions, presentations and fireside chats we heard from the leaders, founders, investors and experts leading the way in this innovative region. 

HolonIQ’s signature data-driven deep dive into the global state of impact highlighted thematics from global shifts in population growth and education needs, to advanced technology, capital markets and the climate crisis. Sessions in the London Summit picked up these themes, from the investment landscape, to innovations in healthcare, educational shifts and skills for the future. Speakers and participants challenged our systems and structures to recognise and move with a changing society that no longer fits old models:

“People's expectations for their lives have completely changed. Even if they go into professions, they want social impact. They want social inclusion. They want choices and mobility and flexibility, they want green employers.”

The world’s largest community of global impact leaders, working towards a more inclusive and sustainable future.

New models, pathways and innovative futures for education and workplace learning.

The need to find, develop and keep talent has never been a greater challenge for employers, and at the same time, governments are struggling to ensure their workforce planning initiatives are aligned with the rapidly changing skills needs of their economy. Old models for training and job finding are no longer working well in the new skills economy. 

In a fascinating panel on new models and partnerships for the skills, jobs and talent models of the future, Mary Curnock Cook (Emerge Education) and Rajay Naik (Skilled Education) discussed both the legacy challenges and potential for institutions and systems to rise to the challenge.

“Schools and universities are still dishing out arguably the same curriculum and the same basket of subjects that they've been dishing out for decades, if not centuries.

Rajay Naik, CEO, Skilled Education

Picking up the theme of training and jobs, and skills, Svenia Busson (European EdTech Alliance) moderated a lively discussion with Helen Gironi (Ufi Ventures), Nic Newman (Emerge Education) and Nellie Marangou (Multiverse) on ‘Reimagining training for the jobs and skills of tomorrow’, highlighting imminent challenges in skills gaps and the suitability of current systems to respond.

Meanwhile, digital transformation efforts in Higher Education have been accelerating, driven by major shifts to online, blended and hybrid learning, new credentials, expanding partnership models, and closer ties between education and work. Traditional university models are struggling to support future needs at the scale and speed required. Ed Fidoe (London Interdisciplinary School), Sven Schütt (The IU Group) and Christian Rebernik (Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences) talked about how the sector is responding and how they see the future shaping up for universities.

“We should aim to constantly learn and base education around real world challenges. These are more engaging topics for learners, and empower the changemakers of tomorrow”

Christian Rebernik, CEO & Co-Founder, Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences

Ed Fidoe (London Interdisciplinary School), Sven Schütt (The IU Group) and Christian Rebernik (Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences) discuss strategic shifts in higher education with moderator Maria Spies, Co-CEO of HolonIQ
Helen Gironi (Ufi Ventures), Nellie Marangou (Multiverse) and Nic Newman (Emerge Education) on ‘Reimagining training for the jobs and skills of tomorrow’

Maria Spies also guided the audience through the European EdTech 200, HolonIQ's annual list of the most promising EdTech startups from across Europe.

Moving the dial with healthcare data, domiciliary care and vision-based patient monitoring.

The application of AI and Machine Learning methods to health data is attracting huge amounts of attention and funding in the global healthcare market. Turning data into actionable insights could have profound consequences for how healthcare functions, both clinically and operationally, and data was a hot topic across several sessions, including a discussion with Indra Joshi (Palantir Technologies) and a deep dive into healthcare innovation with Anushka Patchava, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at Vitality, who shared perspectives on how the health world is changing, and the role of data within this.

“Data, data data - we don't use it in healthcare. We use it in ad tech more than we use it in healthcare, so how do we get remote patient monitoring data flowing?”

Anushka Patchava, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Vitality

In a fireside chat with HolonIQ’s VP Health, Vernon Baxter, Max Parmentier (Birdie) also spoke about the challenges of home care. Bending the cost curve in health and social care will require changes to treatment pathways that put the patient at the heart of the health system. In many cases, the most appropriate and cost effective place for an individual to receive treatment is in their home, but systemic issues can prevent this from taking place. 

“We've given the keys of our health to professionals organised in siloes. I think the future will be about patients taking control of their health and having access to a range of services and the right information to make their own calls”

Max Parmentier, CEO, Birdie

Other healthcare sessions explored the radiology market with Hexarad CEO Farzana Rahman, and vision-based patient monitoring, with Hugh Lloyd-Dukes (Oxehealth). During the day, HolonIQ’s VP, Health, Vernon Baxter, also unveiled the European Health Tech 200 - the annual list of the most promising startups from across digital health, biotech, medtech and other areas where entrepreneurs are driving healthcare innovation.

Climate  

Climate tech was also on the agenda, with a panel including Naveed Chaudhry (Centre for Climate Change Innovation), Michael Langguth (Carbon13) and Paula White (Google Cloud).

Looking ahead to what’s next in climate tech, the panel discussed guiding principles behind investment strategies, new models to support 24/7 carbon free energy and enabling partners to decarbonize, including the challenges and roadblocks involved.

Friederike Grosse-Holz, Investment Director at Blue Horizon Corporation, shared perspectives on quantifying human, planetary and animal impact, and responses to ‘Food for Thought’, a report with BCG which forecast 9/10 of the world’s favorite dishes to have realistic alternatives  by 2035, with alt proteins occupying 11% of the protein market growth and an estimated $290B in revenue.
