"This conference explored modes of togetherness in innovating in medicine and health. We talked about collaborations between disciplines and fields, analyse ways in which innovations and settings work or fail to work together, and investigated the intertwinements of technologies and politics.

In their explorations, conference participants went beyond the focus on collaboration between humans, stretching the understanding of ‘togetherness’ to include technologies, contexts, and values. That is ‘doing things together’ is about innovation processes working in collaboration with governance structures, material environments and cultural landscapes."
