Medical Device Innovation: Resilience, Services and Support Showcase


As a community of innovators and supporting services, we are pleased to showcase the resources available from agencies to the wider Medical & Healthcare organisations, inclusive of companies, academics and clinicians.

This event provides an introduction and update on the available support. The aim is to help more swiftly navigate the changing MedTech landscape, from basic R&D through to commercialisation, into sustainable growth and scale-up.
