Varied mix of presentations and keynote speeches

With a just a few weeks to go before it all kicks off, the programme of accompanying events for T4M – Technology for Medical Devices has been announced. It covers a scope and content that clearly demonstrates the potential this new trade fair has to become an established meeting point for the medical technology sector. Experts from the worlds of industry and science will be sharing their knowledge and insights on two stages set up directly in the exhibition area, as well as the Pitching Stage for founder forum T4M Start-up World.

Some of the highlights of the T4M accompanying programme include the three keynote speeches which kick start every trade fair day. In exciting and entertaining sessions, they provide insights into and views of different areas of the medical technology industry. Miriam Schuh for example, Salary Partner at reuschlaw Legal Consultants, will be outlining key industry concerns one year before the MDR transitional period comes to an end. Futurologist and 5-star speaker Sven Gábor Jánszky will be providing visionary insights into the future of medicine during his keynote speech, taking his audience on a journey through time to the year 2030. On the last day of the trade fair, Marcus Kuhlmann, Head of the Medical Technology Working Group at German hightech industry association SPECTARIS, will be highlighting the market development of medical technology from an insider's perspective.

“The Production of Tomorrow” is a theme which courses through the entire T4M accompanying programme. Industrial software expert Dr. Thomas Mücke, from Siemens, will be giving an interesting presentation on the “Smart Factory – The digital twin for better security and transparency in medical technology processes.”

The relevance of cooperations is also emphasised by the workshop “Smart health – From research to application”, in which microTEC Südwest, cluster platform for microsystem technology, will be presenting the “In Vitro Diagnostics” and “Intelligent Implants” specialist groups, as well as the “3D-Bio-Net” funded project.

Participants in the medical technology trade fair will be able to look more closely at smart technologies such as additive manufacturing. Dr. med. Ahmed Ghazy from the Cardiac Surgery Department at Mainz University,  will describe the potential applications of 3-D printing technology in relation to the heart, the thorax and vascular surgery.
