Mentlife seminar – An introduction to Medtech, a fast growing Life Science industry
Health care is increasingly dependent on technology and, due to an expansion in the elderly population and the demands this places on national resources, this dependence is likely to accelerate. Medical technology products can range from important yet simple single-use products to complex systems for diagnosis, treatment and monitoring. The field has expanded to encompass multiple areas of expertise, approaching and in many cases overlapping with those of drug development.
This seminar will provide an overview of the medtech industry with examples of applications ranging from nanotechnology and bio-materials, to imaging and e-health solutions. An overview of the local business arena as well as funding opportunities and relevant networks will be presented.
Date: 24 January, 2018
Venue: Auditorium, Medicon Village, Scheelevägen 2
Mölnlycke Health Care, a world leading medical solutions company will discuss their research and development, and Swedish Medtech, the trade association for medical device industry in Sweden, will describe the diversity of the industry.
After the seminar there will be an opportunity to ask questions about the types of educational background required by today’s medtech companies and what kind of competences are likely to be needed in the future.
