EKFZ | InnoDays Special Edition 2023
Over the past four years, we have built up an extensive network of contacts in the Dresden high-tech scene and beyond. With the EKFZ | InnoDays we use our status as a multiplier and shared this network with 250 participants in this year’s special edition, as the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Foundation’s interim review took place at the same day.
Bringing innovators together
Our mission is to connect innovators in digital health and medtech. The InnoDays is the perfect environment to be inspired by other innovators, from students to researchers from different disciplines, industry professionals or attendees that are simply passionate about medical technology and the latest news in digital health. This year we focused on featuring our recently appointed professors and of course our enormously dedicated innovation teams.
All of our professors fill unique gaps in the digital health research space and attract young international talents to join their research groups. Stephen Gilbert, Jakob N. Kather, Ivan Minev and Designated Professor Larysa Baraban gave engaging overviews of their research and vision for the following years: from the challenges of regulatory science, to the benefits of AI in medicine, to bioelectronics and soft implants, to nanotechnology driven medical systems. Nora Martens explained how we support young talents from undergraduate to postgraduate level. With the Clinicum Digitale, undergraduate courses at the TUD and with SECAI as a partner we are training a new generation of physicians and engineers.
Our Interdisciplinary Innovation Projects (IIP) presented in an exhibition demonstrators and prototypes, which the participants could test. A wide range of demonstrations from our innovation projects gave attendees a comprehensive insight into medical technology innovation and the latest trends in the digital health scene.
Mark your calendars for next year’s event: 11. – 13.09.2024.
The next InnoDays will be expanded with numerous technical presentations, a larger demo exhibition with industry partners, pitch sessions for researchers and several meetings of large collaborative projects in which the EKFZ is a partner. Don’t miss this opportunity to network and meet other digital health innovators.
