In a connected, high paced, and complex world, break-through innovations are increasingly born at the borderline across various technologies and branches. High-tech branches are utilizing a wide range of basic technologies including information technology, smart algorithms, electronics, and material technologies. Significant opportunities arise from transferring technology between Space Air and MedTech branch.
In order to stimulate innovation through technology transfer, ESA initiated a series of transfer events across Europe in various branch fields. As part of this series, ESA, Forum MedTech Pharma, DLR and their partners will host the Space Air / MedTech Transfer Event on December 6.
R&D-Experts, Product Managers, Business Developers, and Market Specialists will have the chance to create and identify technology matches between the two branches for their respective companies. In the moderated workshops, a portfolio of technology offers from the aerospace industry will be used to start creating innovative ideas and new opportunities for you and your company. In addition, every participant can bring along technology offers and requests to be discussed during the interactive workshops.
This unique event will create new cross-industry cooperation projects and increase the participants’ business networks to a new level.
