CMI-NEN Matchmaking Symposium



On April 22, 2022 we cordially invite you to participate in the inspiring CMI-NEN Matchmaking Symposium. This day will be entirely devoted to innovative imaging and diagnostics. In addition to the many informative lectures by top speakers from the CMI-NEN consortium, there are various matchmaking opportunities with the interdisciplinary Center for Medical Imaging North East Netherlands (CMI-NEN). The symposium brings together clinical partners, business associates and researchers. By putting cooperation ahead of competition against each other, greater achievements become possible than without this content-driven joining of forces. We believe that collaboration and community building are central to this event to ultimately create an impact on healthcare through technology.
