Given the fact that Righospital is the biggest university hospital in Denmark, this facility work closely with Greater Copenhagen Health Science Partners and Clinical Academic Groups (in short, CAGs) as these latter are drivers for research and innovation. The typical health research groups, the composition of the board and the lessons learnt from the operation of CAGs were all in detail introduced.
A higher education curricula and lecturer-students's skills development initiative called Coppenhagen Health innovation was also presented during the study visit. The aim of this initiative is that it links the health care providers with the strongest knowledge and educational institutions within the health and medical sciences. By doing so, it simultaneously develops the market actors and knowledge providers within the medical technology innovation-education value chain.
Medtech4 Europe project partners and their numerous stakeholders being present also visited the location of Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES). CAMES laboratories provide world class simulation and training facilities in favour of professional education, prototyping and related simulations.
The late afternoon presentations focused on the introduction of Trial Nation (this is a public and private partnership consisting of Ministry of Health, Ministry of Business, pharma and medtech companies within Denmark, being accessible in the whole territory of the country), on ESS + MAX IV (next generation syncronothron radiation) and the detailed presentation of the European level interest articulation lobby organisation gathering big medical device providers called MedTech Europe.
