Premiering in 2018: The electronica Medical Electronics Conference (eMEC)
What is the latest on Surgery 4.0? What opportunities does smart regeneration offer? What are the cyber security challenges facing hospitals? What do we need to know about the approval and certification of medical devices?
|Date:||November 15, 2018|
|Venue:||ICM—Internationales Congress Center München|
The Medical Electronics Conference will see well-known representatives from research and industry discussing current issues and challenges, as well as subjects for the future. From 2018, there will be a separate conference dedicated to the highlight topic of medical electronics. As far as medicine is concerned this means that people will change from purely being users to being development partners who advise the electronics industry on their requirements and any potential critical pitfalls.
