Task Force Medical Device

"Being member of the task force Medical Device, we have the unique chance to form a new task force "from the scratch". We can define the topics and direction where to go with this task force. The development of Medical Devices is very diverse, interesting and challenging. IT is a real chance to exchange expertise and learn from other task force members." Ivo Schauwecker

We want to establish the SwAPP task force Medical Devices as a platform for professionals working in the field of developing Medical Devices. We focus on the "late stage" development (e.g. pre-clinical and clinical development, and licensing of Medical Devices). This working group is currently in the process of forming itself and a detailed working program will be established by the task force members and in collaboration with the SwAPP board. 
Please apply to become a member of this task force now.
