The Spanish Nanomedicine Platform (NanomedSpain), led by IBEC director Josep Samitier, is once again participating in the annual conference of Spain’s Plataformas Tecnológicas de Investigación Biomédica.
At the meeting, which is being held at the Hotel Crowne Plaze today and tomorrow, the keynote speaker invited by NanoMed Spain is Sylvia Bove, CEO of EIT Health. In addition, the Platform is organizing a parallel session on innovation in nanomedicine, in which various projects funded by the European programme H2020 will be presented. These success stories will include IBEC’s Elena Martinez’s ERC Consolidator grant to use biomimetic systems to study intestinal epithelium related diseases, as well as the SME Neos Surgery, which has received funding to complete the development of a new device for spine surgery.
The focus of Nanomed Spain in the coming weeks will focus on the CPI Initiative, which aims to evaluate the technological expertise of the organizations that are part of the platform and explore new opportunities for marketing. The project, called “Oferta Tecnológica para Retos Asistenciales con Nanomedicina” will collect the key technologies that the companies and associated research centers have in advanced stages of development (up to 2 years from time-to-market) to construct a technology supply map. On April 14, a CPI day devoted to the initiative will be held at IBEC.
