MedTech Science and Innovation Day – 26 April 2022

The Uppsala MedTech Science and Innovation Centre is hosting a one-day conference on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at Hubben, located in the center of Uppsala Science Park.

With this conference we aim to bring together people working in the MedTech field here in Uppsala, inform about various ongoing works, and spark new collaborations between the University Hospital and researchers at Uppsala University. 

In addition to talks given by clinicians and researchers, there will be an interactive discussion session where the participants will have the opportunity to discuss MedTech research topics of their interest that may foster new, prosperous collaborations. To facilitate writing external grant applications for such project, there will be small MTSI Seed Grants to be given based on short idea abstracts stemming from new collaborations that arise from discussions at the conference.  The form and format will be described during the event.

There is no cost for attending the conference, but space is limited so do not wait to register! You can register here until April 12th.

Date and time: 26 April 2022,  09:00 - 17:00
Place: Konferens Hubben, Science Park, Dag Hammarskjölds väg 38, Uppsala
