TECHMED SERIES: 8 SESSIONS
The TechMed Series "Remove the barriers to market readiness" is a one-year-course of workshops for (future) entrepreneurs and scientists in medical technology. The series covers the most important, but also most challenging topics required for the development and production of a safe, reliable and useful medical devices. Following the successes of the past years, we have updated the program to fit your needs on the road to market readiness. During the course of 1 year, 8 sessions are organized, taking place every month on an afternoon and focusing on one specific topic every session. During the sessions, you will work in groups to bring new knowledge to the test. There are no oblications, but we highly encourage you to bring your own case into the discussion! It is possible to attend the complete course, but also separate sessions.
ALL SESSIONS INCLUDES:
- Introduction by TechMed Centre.
- Learn from the best pitches: Participants can present their idea/struggle/product to the experts and they will give feedback.
- Lectures about the subject by the TechMed partners (Holland Innovative, Panton and Unitron) & 1 University of Twente lector.
- Workshop with different (inter)active exercises and working on your own case.
- Meet & Eat: Dinner & Drinks.
Special program parts:
- Presentation by TechMed Centre (Session 1)
- Guided tours for specific courses (Session 4, 7 and 8)
session 1: GETTING STARTED WITH THE CE MARKing
Getting the CE Marking is certainly not something you would do on a Friday afternoon but is often underestimated, especially now the regulations have been updated to the MDR. You need a.o. to test the product; by official test houses on legal standards, build up a technical construction dossier, have a quality management system, with approved suppliers and implemented of risk assessments by proven competent team members. Most of these requirements however, could be prepared very early on during the development of a medical device, and makes the CE marking process later on much easier.
This training provides you with a starting point of what is changed due to the introduction of the Medical Device Regulation, what required for CE marking and Quality Management.
