HYPEREGIO - B2B Matchmaking “Plastics in Medtech & Life Sciences”

Plastic is a material with manifold possibilities in medical technology and life sciences. It can be used for disposable products (injections, tubes), for implants and prosthesis or as parts for medical instruments. Throughout all application areas quality control and the validation of the process in medical technology is of great importance. Experts from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine area inform about current trends and challenges of plastic processing for medical devices. Besides the keynote speeches, we organise brief pitches, where SMEs and knowledge providers present themselves, their ideas and what they are looking for. You will also get to know each other in one-on-one meetings to discuss your problem or solution in detail with companies across the borders. Use this opportunity to find your perfect match!
