Join us for the BioInnovation Summer Symposium 2017

We would like to invite you to the BioInnovation Summer Symposium in Munich in July 2017. BioInnovation is a MedInnovate graduate program in collaboration with UnternehmerTUM; it represents a five month workshop for graduate students at Technical University of Munich, focusing on a needs-driven innovation framework similar to Stanford Biodesign. For the last months, three teams have been working extensively in the areas of Obstetrics, Urology and Vascular Surgery with the goal of identifying unmet clinical needs and creating innovative concepts to solve those.

The symposium represents the finish of the workshop and will take place in Munich at the showroom of the chair for Industrial Design of Technical University of Munich on July 20, 2017 starting at 19:00.

At the symposium, our teams will pitch their identified clinical need as well as their solution concept and startup idea to solve it. In a framework programme, we will showcase different factors around BioInnovation and general entrepreneurship in MedTech.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in July! Please RSVP online at our Evenbrite page
