Make Medical Device Creation Easier - Turning regulatory complexity into a competitive advantage

Medical device makers want to improve products' Time-to-Market while complying with an ever increasing regulatory complexity. When well managed, rapidly changing regulations are opportunities to be used to build a competitive advantage.

During this half-day event we highlight the recent regulatory changes introduced by the new MDR and IVDR, how they impact medical device development practices, and how to turn these challenges into opportunities.

Many medical device companies who want to handle these challenges efficiently have introduced Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) as a business transformation approach introducing a cross-functional IT platform supporting the complete process from idea to product launch – offering increased leverage on a modular platform, reduced lead times and reduced cost. 

In this event you will learn why medical device manufacturers have chosen this approach – often bridging engineering, regulatory and QA functions, what benefits are targeted, and how global medical device manufacturers are handling these challenges.


When: March 12th, 11:30 - 17:30 + Apero

Where: Lehmann Riverside, Spinnerei-Lettenstrasse, CH-8192 Zweidlen-Glattfelden, Switzerland
