Universities and hospitals are hotbeds for MedTech innovation. Medical industry players, either large or small, recognise the value of having their product and therapy development team co-operate with physicians and scientists. Several groundbreaking inventions have only been possible thanks to a multidisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians and engineers. But before jumping blindly into a multitude of collaborations, companies should be conscious about their strategy and the potential pitfalls.

There are number of different methods on collaborative practice between industry and physicians, throughout the product life cycle.

In this workshop, Nico Van Tichelen shares his personal experience on engineer-physician collaboration in the development and commercialisation of MedTech innovations. He will explore different collaboration strategies, both during the development and post marketing phase, and by means of real life examples share some keys to success.

Workshop participants will benefit from having reviewed their own engineer-physician collaboration strategy before participating into the workshop. Bring a list of current and potential future collaborations for your own project.
