2nd Smart implant & (Bio-)medical imaging platform meetings
27-06-2017 :: imec

Organizer: DSP Valley and FlandersBio

Join us on June 27th  for the 2nd Smart implant & (Bio-)medical imaging platform meetings with a focus on neurology.

DSP Valley and flanders.bio launched these platforms to support innovations in the healthcare domain at the crossroads of the Key Enabling Technologies of biotechnology and digital technologies.

Companies and academic partners will present their technology and expertise in the field of Neurology, from the imaging (morning session) and the implant perspective (afternoon session).  After the coffee break in the afternoon we will learn from the experiences with implants in the clinic. We will close the day with a short workshop on how cooperation between technology, pharma and clinical practice can be enhanced.
Those who are interested, can finally join for a guided visit through the imec laboratories.
