Session:

How to build a MedTech Valley in Belgium ?

Location Einstein ABC Room Start / end time 11:15 am to 11:45 am

Let’s reflect on the current situation in Belgium to determine if it is indeed or not yet a fertile ground for medical technologies innovation.

With the cross view of companies leaders and other stakeholders, we will discuss the elements that are contributing or missing to further promote a Belgian MedTech Valley. We will also get some insights from abroad examples and inspiration from the pharma valley.

The open discussion with the panel members will lead to call for actions and provide food for thoughts to pave the way for an even brighter future.
