  • To introduce selected technology solutions which are on the verge to become products or gained product status very recently.
The presentations from the workshop  focused on topics like "medical needs for early diagnosis", "patient monitoring & therapy", "needs from public health authorities", "technology road mapping on bioelectronics/MNBS and biophotonics", "nanomedicine roadmap and vision in Medical Imaging and in-vitro diagnostics", as well as future opportunities under Horizon2020.
