Accelerating the global innovation community

Biotech & Medical

The area of Northern Europe around Malmö/Lund, Copenhagen and Hamburg provides an exciting venue for life science and innovation and is proud to host the inaugural TechConnect Europe meeting. This growing region already includes hundreds of companies in MedTech, BioTech and Pharma and offers significant research infrastructure including: MAX IV, ESS, DESY and European XFEL.

The bio/medical track of this conference will highlight new opportunities created by the rapidly growing and converging sectors of medicine with technology, computer science, data analysis and processing. This track is being planned in the spirit of the greater TechConnect meeting, which is a venue facilitating cross-disciplinary and cross-sector collaborations offering access to new technologies, innovation, and initiatives.

Join us a the Medicine-Biotech track and expand your industry-academia network while at the same time learning about the latest ideas, research projects, resources, initiatives and innovations in, and of importance to, life science and innovation!
