These major events in Europe will bring together more than 750 international players in the medical technology, diagnostics and digital sector. They will make it possible "to identify innovative products, services and technologies, to facilitate research and innovation partnerships between major industrial groups, start-ups and academia, but also to intensify licensing flows and facilitate access to the innovation market ". The event is organised by MedFIT and BioFIT and its co-organisers, BioValley France, Eurasanté, Medicalps, Clubster NSL, and the Eurobiomed competitiveness cluster. The SATT Network, the association that federates the 13 SATTs, is a partner of both events and 8 SATTs will participate in order to showcase health innovations from French public research.


What are the major assets for these essential health events?

  • Partnering: meeting future partners and accelerating the development of inventions,
  • Exhibition: shine at dematerialized meetings,
  • Pitching sessions: convincing experts by presenting your project,
  • Conferences and round tables: Debate on current issues related to health innovation.


A programme promoting networking between heavyweight players in the field

4 days of exchanges between innovation players in #MedTech represented by major groups in the medical technology, diagnostics, e-health and in vitro diagnostics industry; start-ups and innovative project leaders; academics and research institutes; technology transfer professionals including 8 SATTs and the SATT Network, intellectual property and licensing; public organizations supporting innovation; private investors and more...
