This free-of-charge workshop will gather representatives from photonics companies, med-tech companies, end-users and researchers interested in commercialisation to discuss and network around issues related to the business development of photonics companies addressing the global healthcare market.
Researchers will learn that starting a company developing photonics technology for healthcare is in fact not necessarily an insurmountable obstacle.
Integrators will meet early stage photonics SMEs willing to team up with a facilitating partner.
SMEs will add tip-offs to their toolbox via expert support.
End-users will find improved high-tech solutions based on photonics technology.
This workshop will not only discuss what types of financing are required to cross the Valley of Death and where to find it, but also how to most efficiently use it for teaming up with the right partners, building the right team and e.g. coping with clinical tests.
The Go-to-Market sessions will lay the focus on market and financing opportunites for photonics applications in health. RespiceSME partner Ian MacCabe from the National University of Ireland will present a Value-Chain Analysis technique and disseminate it in the Go-to-Market nr. 2 (Customers and Business Development).
