In informal interviews, we will introduce you to a selection of scientists, researchers and industry partners at the ZWT – Center for Knowledge & Technology Transfer in Medicine and explore the special way they work closely together. Above all, the idea is to network and to find opportunities for collaboration all while enjoying a hearty late breakfast.

Please note that you must check the box “Pre-Opening” in your personal agenda if you wish to take part in this Breakfast event, as we can only accommodate a limited number of participants.

VENUE: ZWT Accelerator – Centre for Knowledge and Technology Transfer in Medicine II

A warm welcome and quick & easy registration for the event.

We want to explore the visions and utopias of the future healthcare market and so we will ask our stakeholders from politics, healthcare and business the challenging question – where will we be in 10 years time in their opinion, what about in 50 years?

Introduction to the Health Tech Hub Styria 2024 and to the highlights over the next two days.

Innovation through collaboration, from metabolic medicine to nano-medicine to AI based tools. We will take you on a journey covering different disciplines enabling the future of diagnostics and therapy.

Enjoy some refreshments & informal networking. 

 

Meet potential partners from Austria, the Alps Adriatic Region and beyond in pre-booked meetings powered by the Enterprise Europe Network.

Learn more about the kind of mindset a corporate has when it comes to driving innovation. What are the hot topics and when does a start-up come into the picture, based on the experience of Novartis. What is essential to initiate exchange and to finally enter into cooperation?

We will introduce you to highly innovative MedTech start-ups from various medical application areas and discuss with stakeholders from the healthcare system how the last few meters to a successful implementation can be mastered.

Our partner from the greater Paris region MIMS (La Maison de l’Innovation de la Médecine Spécialisée) will give us an insight into a unique European project with clinicians, medical practices and industry partners, in which highly innovative solutions can be tested for routine use in a real-life setting.

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, the disparity in technological adoption, often referred to as the ‘digital skill gap’, presents a critical challenge for healthtech. Considering the rising number of aging users, developers need to integrate the needs and coping strategies of older adults into a user innovation process to develop with and not for an aging population. 

Conclusions of the first day & a preview of upcoming highlights.

Meet potential partners from Austria, the Alps Adriatic Region and beyond. Enjoy your meeting in a relaxed setting with refreshments.
