USER FORUM 2020 in Muenster, Germany

The meeting tagline LEARN – SHARE – CONNECT encapsulates the concept of the USER FORUM: LEARN from PROGNOST System experts, SHARE your experiences during the second day of the USER FORUM through case study presentations, and CONNECT with your industry peers in a professional, yet relaxed, atmosphere.

LEARN

The USER FORUM begins with presentations, hands-on workshops, and interactive sessions to increase your knowledge. The dual track agenda covers best practices, new features, and expert tips for PROGNOST®-NT, PROGNOST®-SILver and PROGNOST®-Predictor users.

CONNECT

The USER FORUM concludes with an Experience Exchange: Users present case studies documenting real-life experiences with PROGNOST technologies.

SHARE

The USER FORUM provides a prime opportunity to interact with industry peers and PROGNOST’s diagnostic, condition monitoring, and hardware experts.
