Meet the makers of innovations

Dear Sir or Madam,

Many good ideas are created in universities, or when people look for a better solution for an everyday-problem or simply through chance. But by now means all ideas become a product or a start-up that offers it. Trade fairs make this way a little bit easier, as they are venues for young companies and potential partners and customers.

If you are looking for new ideas and start-ups in medical technology, come find them in our Trend Topic "Meet the makers of innovations"!

And you can actually get to know many start-ups in person: from 15 to 28 November in the MEDICA START-UP PARK. And even if you cannot visit MEDICA physically, you still have the possibility to stream the program of our forums and conferences online.

Enjoy exploring!

Healthcare: "The digital transformation has only just begun"

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to rethink the healthcare system: It gave way to contactless services over the phone or the internet. Why would we not continue to take advantage of this once the crisis will be over? After all, it provides the framework for a digital healthcare system that makes things easier for everyone and is something most want to access. The MEDICA ECON FORUM by TK at MEDICA 2021 will address this subject.
