Achieving patient-centricity under the new MDR - balancing stakeholder interests
Our Annual Conference
The annual conference of the Medtech & Pharma Platform is dedicated to products and solutions combining medtech and pharma components. Since its inauguration in 2014, the annual event has continually grown attracting an increasing number of participants and exhibitors.
The goal of the MPP is to bring together key stakeholders from the life sciences sector to foster greater cooperation between medtech and pharma industries. The Annual Conference seeks to achieve this goal through four core activities:
Knowledge exchange: Every year prominent speakers from regulatory authorities, medtech and pharma companies, government institutions, research laboratories, consulting firms and patients' organizations share their insights in this emerging field. During the two days of the annual meeting, six sessions on different aspects of the overarching Conference theme provide participants with the opportunity to build their expertise and update their knowledge in this fast-paced and constantly evolving cross-sectoral area.
Virtual Conference Platform: This year’s virtual MPP Annual Conference utilizes a virtual conference platform that builds upon the existing 1-1 partnering tool, incorporating a suite of new features on a browser and mobile app, to facilitate interactions for Sponsors, Exhibitors and Attendees. Benefit from direct video conferencing, the ability for Sponsors and Exhibitors to invite external company colleagues to important video partnering meetings and live video streaming of the presentations and panel discussion, as well as view presentations on-demand so you won’t miss a thing.
1-on-1 partnering: One of the trademarks of our Conference is the 1-on-1 partnering, which facilitates meetings between participants to identify new business partners, discuss potential projects and network with your peers across the two days of the Conference.
Networking opportunities: Grow your professional network! With the Annual Conference attracting experienced professionals from around the world, representing medtech, biopharma, government authorities, regulators, academia and NGOs, there is no better opportunity to expand your network and make first-hand contacts in organisations relevant to all aspects of your work.
