EuroMedtech™ 2014 presenting companies bring cutting edge medical technologies to potential partners

The sixth annual EuroMedtech™partnering conference will be held May 7–8, 2014 in Linz, Austria.

EuroMedtech is Europe’s leading medical technology partnering conference, providing collaboration opportunities to medtech decision makers and investors.

The Presenting Companies track provides a pipeline to innovative companies interested in partnering their technologies or products, initiating strategic alliances, or tapping into the international financing network. In addition, early stage projects and small entrepreneurial companies can present their novel ideas to large medtech, pharma, and investors in the Next Generation track.

A preliminary list of presenting companies has just been released, and includes industry innovators such as Acarix A/S; AFreeze; Avalon Health Economics; CiToxLAB Scantox; ConsulTech GmbH; CVTEC; Humedics GmbH; Implandata Ophthalmic Products GmbH; ImPress MedTech e.U.; Inventram/Tarabios; iSTAR Medical SA; J A Kemp; Johns Hopkins University; LevOss; LIVEcheck – Global Diagnostics; Michelson Diagnostics Ltd; Reapplix; Sagentia; Senzime; Sheltagen Medical Ltd; Software Quality Lab GmbH; Transcatheter Technologies GmbH.

iSTAR has introduced an innovative ophthalmic implant made from STAR® Biomaterial and has partnered with international distributors that were initially met at EuroMedtech 2012,” said Michel Alvarez, CEO of iSTAR Medical. “Presenting again will put us in front of new potential partners and investors interested in our current product and our robust development pipeline.”

“There is a huge market demand for technologies to treat chronic wounds, particularly diabetic wounds,” said Niels Erik Holm, Founder and CEO of Reapplix. “Our expected exit time is past the completion of our Randomized Controlled Trial, however, in the meantime we would like to discuss market access/reimbursement and commercialization strategies with potential partners. EuroMedtech puts us in front of the right people.”

Produced by EBD Group, EuroMedtech caters to companies involved in all parts of the advanced medical technology industry, from those serving mainline therapeutic categories such as drug delivery and augmented intervention in medicine, through diagnostics, imaging and eHealth to those involved in platform technologies such as micro and nanotechnological tools and implantable devices.

The 2013 event attracted 261 dealmakers from 191 companies who participated in 600 one-to-one meetings. The event also featured presentations by 44 of the most exciting medtech companies in Europe.
