HealthTech Summit ClusterXchange program announced for 21-22 March

Speakers, sponsors and international visitors to HealthTech Summit are invited to the MEDVIA ClusterXchange on 21-22 March. MEDVIA Carry and Cultivate members may also register for the free event

MEDVIA is pleased to announce that a two-day ClusterXchange program has been established as part of HealthTech Summit 2023. On 21-22 March, the two days leading up to HealthTech Summit, MEDVIA is hosting the free event, which includes a special program aimed at our international visitors.

What’s a ClusterXchange?

A ClusterXchange is part of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform’s program to better connect Europe’s industrial ecosystems. Clusters working in similar sectors around Europe come together to exchange views, learn from each other and come into contact with pan-European venture capitalists, potential customers and development funding or services.

MEDVIA is one of the founding members of the Medic Nest alliance, a group of four European healthtech clusters. Each cluster will host a ClusterXchange at least once a year. Medic Nest’s first ClusterXchange took place earlier this month in Romania.

What’s on the program in Leuven?

Day 1 in Leuven includes visits to the expertise center Health House, the world-class university hospital UZ Leuven and presentations by Medic Nest members. Day 2 includes a pitch session, a presentation on smart healthcare and a workshop on bridging the gap between research and commercialization.
