This month, we were delighted to sit down with the UK’s Department for International Trade MedTech and Genomics Specialist Dr Neil Ebenezer to discuss all things MEDICA.
The UK’s Department for International Trade has unveiled its extensive programme of activity supporting UK life science businesses to bolster trade partnerships at MEDICA 2022; the world’s largest event for the medical sector.
This year for the first time ever, there will a dedicated ‘UK Pavilion Presentation Theatre’ hosted on the UK Pavilion (Hall 16, stand J48) to showcase the strengths of UK life sciences.
Organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT), Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI), and co-sponsored by Welsh Government and law firm Sidley Austin, the theatre will run for the full four days at the show, providing UK companies with an unprecedented platform to demonstrate their innovations to international buyers and forge new partnerships. The platform will offer UK companies a unique platform to showcase their latest innovations to all markets.
Dr Neil Ebenezer will be presenting on a number of key topics including the Potential Future UK MedTech Regulatory Framework, the UK MedTech Landscape and changes to IP since the end of the Brexit transition period.
