15:00 - 16:30MedTech Dialog Bayern
The health industry is of great importance in Bavaria. Many high-tech innovations in medical technology come from the state. Against this background, for the Bavarian State Government an innovation-friendly climate has high priority in the medical technology sector.
The factors influencing the innovation climate are very diverse. Many framework conditions result from global, European or domestic trends and decisions. Nonetheless, there are many possibilities at the state level as well to promote the success of the medical technology sector by offering support, backing innovation and influencing the political structure. The Bavarian State Government is taking advantage of these options to the fullest extent.
The initiative named “MedTech Dialog Bayern” started in 2017 is being continued without interruption. According to the meetings with experts and recommendations for action, it is now about giving purposeful impulses and remaining permanently in exchange. The regulation and digitalization challenges identified at the beginning are still relevant, as are also the fascinating options that future technologies bring such as artificial intelligence, robotics or additive production, which must become even more the focus of targeted measures.
For the third time, a dialogue forum will take place at the MedTech Summit. Legislators, companies, service providers and researchers meet to set the course together for a continuously highly innovative Bavarian medical technology sector.
