Purpose and goal
The overall aim of these external activities were to increase the knowledge about Medtech4Health and medtech among different target audiences. This is something we achieved by attracting several hundreds of people to participate in these events.
Expected results and effects
Collaboration is key to the success of Medtech4Health. We need to collaborate with other organisations and we need to facilitate the collaboration between different stakeholders. This is something we take seriously and therefore we carried out these events in collaboration with different audiences. We attracted loads of people and we believe we achieved our goals.
Planned approach and implementation
European MedTech Week attracted a broad and knowledgeable audience. In all, several hundred people took part in five events arranged by different local organisations. Almedalen: This year, Medtech4Health organised a variety of activities. We had a separate seminar entitled Medtech saves lives are you afraid of change? Together with Swedish Medtech and MTF, a very well-attended AI mingel was organised. During Medical Technology Days we had a separate track where fifteen of the projects receiving funding from one of our calls were given the opportunity to present themselves.
