Medtech & Pharma Platform

Historically, pharmaceutical and medtech industries have been following different paths in terms of product development as well as regulations. However, recent years have seen a trend towards the combined development of drugs and devices (combination products) as well as in vitro diagnostics (IVDs). These products encompass characteristics of both drugs and devices and requirements of different regulatory frameworks can apply simultaneously.

Co-organized by SFL and Medical Cluster, the Medtech-Pharma Platform aims at bringing together key stakeholders from the pharma and device industries, regulators and academia. Through its annual meeting, the Medtech-Pharma Platform provides a forum to share experiences in the development of innovative health care products and bridge the gap in understanding interdependencies in the development and marketing of drugs, devices, IVDs and combination products.
