Welcome to the workshop on applications and technologies for the MedTech industry at MAX IV and ESS organized by MAXA MedTech on March 13, 2019

The MAXA MedTech workshop

On Wednesday, March 13, MAXA MedTech will organize a workshop at the MAX IV facilities in Lund. The focus will be on applications and technologies, relevant for the MedTech industry, that exist or will be available at the large research infrastructures MAX IV and ESS (European Spallation Source) at the University of Lund in Skåne in southern Sweden. Our aim is to increase the accessibility and use of these facilities both nationally and internationally by the MedTech industry.

We want to create a network that brings together industries with common interests, which in the long run can generate new platforms and projects.

Together, we aim to increase the MedTech industry’s awareness and knowledge of relevant instruments that are being built at MAX IV and ESS. We also seek to enable participation in the building of test environments at these research facilities, specially designed for the MedTech industry, testing everything from implants to devices and diagnostics.
