MedTech Week – Activities

We are surrounded by medical technologies. But how much do we know about them?

More than 500,000 medical technologies are currently available. All of those medical devices aim at saving, improving or extending people’s lives and enhance healthcare system. The first time we get in touch with medical devices is at the very beginning of our life. But how much do we know about them? Who develops them? How do they access the market? Who is in charge of monitoring them afterwards?

During the MedTech Week*, companies and other stakeholders from all around Europe organize activities aiming at promoting the industry of medical devices.

In this frame COVARTIM is organizing two events with the goal of raising awareness of medical devices specificities among non-specialists and healthcare professionals and supporting new entrepreneurs with their medtech project.

*MedTech Week is a MedTech Europe initiative
