EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

MedPhab: Congratulations for your three years!

It has been three years of advancing medical devices based on photonics technologies

Three years already finalized for MedPhab, pilot line for photonics-based medical devices, and EU-funded initiative. To discuss the progress and remaining challenges, the consortium met in Philips premises in Eindhoven December 13 and 14, 2022. Key highlights of the results of MedPhab include the successful participation of the pilotline in COMPAMED/MEDICA trade fair this year, the interest of almost 30 companies in MedPhab services, the implementation of six external demonstrator cases selected by an open call, the preparations for the sustainable plan and operations, as well as the building of the ecosystem through the community management platform. In addition, we received recommendations on the sustainable operations of our experts in the External Advisory Board: Furio Gramatica, Ulrich Stärker, and Robert Sanders, which will be taken in consideration for the last year of the project.

Next year brings high expectations in the completion of several activities, including the establishment of MedPhab sustainable operations and continuation of further demonstrator cases, as the open call remains open until April 2023.
