Transatlantic Cluster Initiative

Roadshow on Health Care & Medical Technology

The health care industry both in Germany and the United States are characterized by vibrant communities from disruptive start-ups to major corporations. The medical device and technology markets have constant need for innovation which leads to an ever-changing landscape with ample opportunities especially in the fields of diagnostics and medical devices.

To build on these developments, GACC Midwest organized a roadshow on the topic of Health Care & Medical Technology on July 24-28 in Minneapolis, MN, Nashville, TN and Fort Wayne, IN.

The roadshow provided company representatives, research professionals, and other industry stakeholders in the medical technology industry the opportunity to discuss opportunities for international collaboration, innovation, and best practices in workforce development.   

The roadshow will be followed by a Health Care & Medical Technology delegation trip to Germany October 16-20, 2017. 15 US-participants will learn firsthand about best-practices from LZG.NRW, MedicalMountains and Medical Valley EMN in the medical technology industry.
