University of Hertfordshire to host international symposium on the future of medical technology

3 June 2009

A symposium that will advise businesses in the global medical technology industry on future strategies for market success will be hosted by the University of Hertfordshire from 21-23 June.

The International MedTech Symposium, sponsored by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and hosted by the University’s Medical Technology Innovation Centre (MTIC) will bring together opinion leaders from industry, government, academia and finance to examine the future of the MedTech industry and to address issues such as the technology needed to make healthcare more effective and efficient and to reduce the time needed to bring products to market.

Dr Sandeep Shah, Director of MTIC, said: “This is an industry-driven event and a forum that will look at what needs to be done to enable the MedTech industry to grow. The University of Hertfordshire has a wealth of MedTech innovation so it is appropriate for it to take the lead by organising this symposium.”

The symposium will look at innovation and investment from a global MedTech perspective yet focussing on the SME (small and medium enterprises) value chain and SME relationships with financing.

The symposium hopes to attract delegates from the USA, Asia and Europe and includes sessions such as:

  • technology, innovation and finance;
  • how SME’s are performing in key international environments;
  • how corporates are thinking;
  • how investment groups are thinking;
  • what is hot in the evolution of new technology offerings;
  • the new MedTech value chain; and
  • critical next steps.
