Innovation in Emerging Medical Devices

Health.E Lighthouse Symposium 8-9 March 2022

Innovation in medical devices

The paradigm shift towards more decentralized and personal healthcare is causing a breakdown of the former borders between MedTech, and the pharmaceutical and electronic components and systems industries. At these fading borders new medical domains are arising that hold great promise not only for patients, but also for industry.

However, innovation in electronic medical devices is slow. The Health.E lighthouse identified the lack of open technology platforms as one of the main causes. Open technology platforms have propelled innovation in the electronic consumer domain but are almost absent in the medical domain that is still largely relying on costly point solutions.

Health.E Symposium

During the past three years, the ECSEL JU Health.E lighthouse has explored the possibilities, advantages and issues associated with open technology platforms for emerging medical devices. Two workshops have been organized and two whitepapers have been published. The insights will be presented during this symposium. In addition, you can learn about:

  • The view of large compagnies, SMEs, RTOs and the commission on the implementation of innovation for medical devices;

  • How projects that are connected to the Health.E lighthouse implement OTPs for emerging medical domains;

  • OTPs for medical devices that are available right now!
