MTI 2020 RESCHEDULED TO 29-30 SEPTEMBER IN LAUSANNE

London, 6 March, 2020 at 12:00PM

 

Campden Wealth, organiser of the MedTech Investing Europe Conference (MTI), Europe’s longest established healthcare partnering and investment event, today announces that the 30th edition of the event has been rescheduled and will take place on 29-30 September 2020 at the Hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne Switzerland as previously scheduled.

 

MTI’s original 31 March – 1 April dates are changing due to growing concerns related to the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) in Switzerland and across Europe.

 

“The well-being of our clients and staff is our priority. Given the evolving context, the best course of action is to postpone MTI to September,” said Campden Wealth Director of Events Peter Newton.

 

“This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We believe these new dates will provide the international MTI community with the opportunity to achieve their business and investment objectives. We are grateful to our clients for their support and constructive input during this challenging period, and we look forward to talking with them in the coming days about MTI in September” added Peter Newton.

 

We will be communicating regularly with the MTI community to provide details of MTI on 29-20 September.

EPFL

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, EPFL, is located on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. It has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. With more than 250 laboratories and research groups on campus, it is one of Europe’s most innovative and productive technology institutes.

The campus offers services and facilities to transform scientific excellence into economic competitiveness, jobs and quality of life. A start-up incubator, coaching services, study programmes in entrepreneurship and innovation programmes all serve to stimulate the links between the lab and business. The Science Park on campus is home to more than 100 enterprises and numerous investors. EPFL’s unique structure facilitates transdisciplinary research and encourages partnerships with other institutions. It emphasizes both fundamental research and engineering applications. Within the EPFL School of Engineering (STI) a wide range of laboratories are active in the field of biomedical technologies, notably in optics and imaging, medical engineering, instrumentation and biomedical signal processing.

The focus is placed on the integration of natural and artificial systems at several levels: development of new models inspired by living organisms, conception of components, tools and systems to facilitate the understanding of the functions of living systems and finally, conception and development of increasingly sophisticated medical aids. A particular emphasis is placed on biomechanics, including mechanical properties and behavior of living tissue and biomaterials, bone mechanics, biomechanics and orthopaedics, prostheses and implants and movement analysis and measurement.

It is clear that biomedical research will increasingly rely on quantitative approaches and high-end technologies. The future of life sciences lies at the crossroads of biology, hard sciences and engineering.

The EPFL School of Life Sciences (SV) was created on this premise, reflecting the thirst for biologically relevant questions amongst EPFL experts in chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering. It comprises four institutes active in neuroscience, bioengineering, infectious diseases and cancer. Integrated approaches are pushed spanning a wide range of disciplines from functional genomics to high-tech bioengineering. In addition to the main Lausanne campus, the SV is present at the Campus Biotech in Geneva with initiatives in neuroprosthetics, the Human Brain Project and a center for Bio and Neuroengineering.
