Are you a healthcare professional, a healthcare entrepreneur with business ideas or do you have an early-stage start-up?

Generating and using evidence is one of the most important steps for MedTech companies on their way to the market. And even when on the market, evidence remains an issue in terms of post-market surveillance. This seminar provides you with an overview of the necessities of clinical studies. Our partners from Profil GmbH will cover regulatory and ethical requirements, and share theoretical knowledge and their experience from the development phase of a medical device.

Finally, there will be a session on pricing strategies.
