The healthcare sector, particularly the medical device industry, is an extremely dynamic business. Experienced market experts are aware that bringing innovative ideas to the market in an efficient way is the most relevant success factor for the medical industry. Unfortunately, the continuously changing rules and conditions for medical device certification and reimbursement counteract the potential of increasing innovation dynamics. In view of this fact, entrepreneurs need to develop strategies for successful innovation management. During the workshop, representatives from device manufacturers, suppliers, and research institutions will get answers to several fundamental questions:

  • Does the use of new methods like crowd sourcing add benefit to innovation management?
  • How can innovative ideas be created?
  • Which criteria are essential to evaluate product ideas?
  • What is necessary to set up sustainable business models?
  • Which tools can support innovation processes?

The workshop will be followed by an evening reception for continued networking and a B2B partnering event on the following day.
