Launch of the Smart Implants platform
28-03-2017 :: TBD

Organizer: DSP Valley and Flanders Bio

To support innovations in the healthcare domain at the crossroads of the Key Enabling Technologies of biotechnology and digital technologies, DSP Valley and FlandersBio are launching 3 separate platforms: one on smart implants, one on (bio)medical imaging and one on lab-on-chip & diagnostics. The launch of the latter two platforms (LoC & Diagnostics, (bio)medical Imaging) in January and February were highly successful. We hope for a similar enthusiastic response for the upcoming smart implants launch meeting.

Do your activities fit into the value chain of smart implants? Then join us in building this platform and register before March 23rd

During this lunch meeting (sandwich lunch at 11h30, start meeting at 12h00, foreseen end at approximately 14h30-15h00) participants are given the opportunity to shortly (5 min.) present their company or research department and highlight their specific expertise and interest in the platform. These presentations will be followed by a discussion round on specific topics where companies and academia could work together. 

In the foreseen time we expect to be able to schedule 10 presentations selected on a first come first served basis. Today we are oversubscribed and have no presentation slots left. Interested parties will be able to present at a next meeting of the respective platform (foreseen June 2017). If, in addition, you have a project or research idea you wish to present and for which you search for partners, please let us know before March 23rd and we will see how we can schedule your request.
