Event Details

MedTech and BioPharma have been apart for too long. Our event will bring them together.

Why attend?

MedTech companies often find the world of BioPharma hard to navigate. In fact, they’re often at sea, unsure of how to tackle the critical legal and regulatory challenges when trying to bring a product to market.

The conference, hosted by Bionesty, will focus on addressing those challenges. Our five keynote speakers are legal and regulatory experts as well as MedTech company directors and will provide you with the essential advice you need to launch, and market, a range of digital health tools.

The conference will outline:

  1. Which digital tools have the potential to become medical devices.
  2. How to file for any necessary regulatory approval when launching a digital health tool.
  3. The challenges that exist for MedTech in terms of patient privacy and data security.
  4. The most effective digital strategies, and the necessary risk assessment and mitigation measures to be aware of.
  5. The current legal guidelines for MedTech companies, and what other help needs to be offered.
