Clinical validation for medical medical devices (towards CE).

In this workshop the following subjects will be handled:

  • Changes from MDD to MDR with respect to clinical evidence.
  • Device classification and routes to CE.
  • What are the different types of clinical evidence?
  • Performing a clinical trial: sponsor perspective.
  • Applying for a clinical trial: medical research ethics committee.
  • Investigational medical device dossier.
  • Documentation for CE.
  • Clinical evidence and documentation after market introduction.


During this workshop you will learn more about the regulatory background, but also about practical issues. A case study will be used for hands-on practice during the workshop. Main questions are:

  • What are the (new) requirements for clinical evidence according to the MDR?
  • What types of clinical evidence exist and how do you set up a clinical trial?
  • What documentation is needed for CE and after market introduction?

This workshop is part of the TechMed Workshop Series ‘Remove the Barriers to Market Readiness’. This one-year-course of workshops covers the most important, but also most challenging, topics required for the development and production of a safe, reliable and useful medical device. The workshops are organized for (future) entrepreneurs in the medical device industry, take place every 2 months on an afternoon and focus on one specific topic every session. It is possible to attend the complete course, but also separate workshops.

The TechMed Workhsop Series is part of the TechMed Proeftuin. By sharing their knowledge and expertise in the workshops series the TechMed Proeftuin partners aim to bring medical innovations 1 TRL level further and closer to a successful market introduction. The TechMed Proeftuin receives funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union; the Workshop Series can therefore be offered free of charge.
