To enhance your chances for successful matchmaking we encourage all participant to give a short pitch in this meeting. We will therefore ask the audience to introduce themselves in about 20-30 seconds during the ‘pitches’; mention your name, where you work, what you do, and what you are looking for during the matchmaking. This could be a clinical problem for which you hope to find a technical solution, or a promising innovative technology that might be of value for the clinic.
