Medtech Networking and Consortium Briefing

Date: 13 Aug 2009 - 13 Aug 2009

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, SIMTech , Tower Block

(BY INVITATION ONLY)

Introduction 
To support the development of the Medical Technology industry in Singapore, a technology driven Medtech Manufacturing Consortium will be formed.  The aims of the consortium are:
 * To address the medical technology needs and challenges faced by the Singapore manufacturing industry
 * To help diversify the capabilities of the local manufacturing industry to Medtech manufacturing
 * To establish medical technology R&D platforms for technology transfer and knowledge sharing amongst stakeholders in the Medtech industry

Two roundtable discussion sessions were organised in February and April 2009 at SIMTech where approximately 50 Medtech companies participated in sharing their needs and the challenges faced in entering and growing businesses in the MedTech industry. Based on the feedback and suggestions from the two roundtable discussions, the basic framework for the Medtech Manufacturing Consortium has been developed.

The Medtech networking event will be held on 13th August  2009 at SIMTech. During the event, the operating framework and funding mechanism of the Medtech Manufacturing Consortium will be presented.
