MedInnovate Winter Symposium 2018 – RVSP now!

Join us for an exciting evening

We would like to invite you to the MedInnovate Winter Symposium in Munich in January 2018. The Winter Symposium provides a venue for healthcare innovation and represents the finish of the MedInnovate Graduate Programme. It will take place in Munich at Nickl Academy on January 25, 2015 starting at 18:30 (sharp).

The MedInnovate Graduate Programme is 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, four teams have been working extensively in the areas of Dermatology, Pathology, Traumatology and Vascular Surgery with the goal of identifying unmet clinical needs and creating innovative concepts to solve those.

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 MedInnovate and general entrepreneurship in MedTech and free drinks and snacks will be provided in the gettogether

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in January!

Information: A (free) RSVP ticket is mandatory to enter the venue and tickets are limited. Registration can be performed online:
