After the great success of the last 10 North German Dialogues, NSF is planning this year, for the eleventh time in cooperation with Life Science Nord e.V. our Symposium at the SIDE Hotel in the heart of Hamburg.
The Symposium will be conducted for the first time in its existence in English, allowing global stakeholders to participate equally in our dialog. Since 2012 – when the 1st Northern German Dialog began – the world has changed significantly!
Global supply chains have been disrupted, travel restrictions put in place and social interactions have shifted into the digital space; economic downturns required new ways of thinking and new technologies have emerged. During these pandemic years, resilient healthcare systems have become much more appreciated and regulators have become more agile around the world.
Over the last 10 years, medical devices are regulated with more clinical focus and in addition generic regulations (on cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, environmental protection etc.).
Our 2022 Symposium highlights why advanced technologies and sustainability expectations will reshape the economic landscape for the MedTech industry and how an adaptive approach to global compliance makes a significant difference.
… our journey beyond EU MDR & IVDR compliance …
Coming out of a 5+ years overhaul of the EU Regulatory Landscape for Medical Devices and IVDs, the outlook beyond 2022 becomes more global again. With lessons learned from a global pandemic, the economic survival in MedTech has discovered new drivers:
- Advanced Technologies have become an integral part of design and manufacturing of the next generation of ’intelligent‘ Medical Devices & IVDs.
- Sustainability/ESG will become more and more significant differentiator. The (double) prevention for human and planet health is a double opportunity.
- Global Compliance is a prerequisite for market access and needs agile processes to master constantly changing global regulations.
You can look forward to top national and international speakers, exciting presentations and lively discussions.
Furthermore, we look forward to welcoming you to our evening event on the roof-top-terrace at the SIDE Hotel.
