Smart Implant & (Bio-)medical Imaging Platform Meeting

DSP Valley and flanders.bio support innovations in the healthcare domain at the crossroads of the Key Enabling Technologies of biotechnology and digital technologies

 

Join us on June 27th at the Smart Implant & (Bio-) Medical Imaging Platform Meeting - with a focus on neurology

 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE = 21/06/2017

Companies like Medtronic, UCB, Boston Scientific, Icometrix, Peira and Caeleste and academic partners will present their technology and expertise in the field of Neurology, from the imaging (morning session) and the implant perspective (afternoon session).

 

After the coffee break in the afternoon we will learn from the experiences with implants in the clinic. We will close the day with a short workshop on how cooperation between technology, pharma and clinical practice can be enhanced.
