The Uppsala MedTech Science and Innovation Centre is hosting a one-day conference on Thursday, April 18, 2024 at Hubben, located in the center of Uppsala Science Park.

With this conference we aim to bring together people working in the MedTech field here in Uppsala, inform about various ongoing works, and spark new collaborations between the University Hospital and researchers at Uppsala University. The theme for this year's conference is "AI in MedTech".

In addition to talks given by clinicians and researchers, there will be an interactive discussion session where the participants will have the opportunity to discuss MedTech research topics that hopefully will foster new and prosperous collaborations. To facilitate writing external grant applications for such projects, there will be small MTSI Seed Grants available to participants based on short idea abstracts stemming from new collaborations that arise from discussions at the conference. The application form will be available at the event.

There is no cost for attending the conference, but space is limited so do not wait to register! You can register here until April 5th.

Date and time: 18 April 2024, 09:00 - 17:00
Place: Konferens Hubben, Science Park, Dag Hammarskjölds väg 38, Uppsala
Program: available for download here.
