In medical technology, the human technology cluster supports companies with a focus on medical (micro)electronics, production technologies, materials science, automation, biomedical sensor technologies, software solutions or biomarker research and application for diagnosis and therapy.
The knowledge of materials, which ranges from plastics, metallurgy, biomaterials to the latest surface finishing technologies, is outstanding. International market leaders such as ams AG, Infineon and AT&S contribute their knowledge to the life science industry and develop new products and technologies together with the region's SMEs.
Based on the existing know-how in Styria, an acoustics focus in the medical field is to be created.
COCKPIT OF THE FUTURE
The goal is the development of a lead project in the field of driver monitoring and a project submission as a COMET project or by means of alternative funding and research cooperation.
Submission to the FFG as a COMET project or the opening of alternative funding channels with a focus on medical sensor technology.
MEDICINE MEETS TECHNOLOGY
Our "Medicine Meets Technology" series of events brings companies, physicians, researchers, users and students together to explore possible potential for cooperation and common challenges.
The aim of the event is to give companies a deeper insight into current research topics and medical challenges, to increase the knowledge of physicians and users with regard to the latest technical implementation options and, ideally, to initiate cooperation among the participants.
Prior areas of focus include:
- AAL / eHealth
- VR / AR
- RFID / NFC
- hospital logistics
National and international networking of our partners is one of our greatest concerns. In order to improve access to national and international markets for cluster players, we will be represented at the following national and international events in 2023:
- DMEA Berlin (April 25-27, 2023)
- Austrian Health Forum Schladming (May 11-13, 2023)
- dHealth Vienna (May 16-17, 2023)
- Delegation trip to Finland (June 2023)
- Exploratory trip med-Logistica Leipzig (05-06 July 2023)
DEVELOPMENT OF NEW BUSINESS FIELDS
Exploring and identifying technologies that are finding their way into medical technology as disruptive innovations. Opening of the MedTech market for suppliers from outside the industry.
