04.12.2012 Biomat-IN-Network holds second SIG meeting in Lille
On 3rd. December, around 50 members of the Biomat-In-Network held their second Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting in Lille, North France, to discuss innovations in the fields of orthopaedics and implants. The date was ideal and ensured lively discussions between companies and research institutions because a large number of SMEs were already in town to take part in Biofit, a regional industrial fair. The STERN BioRegion was represented by the Hohenstein Institutes and the Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering Denkendorf ITV who both gave short presentations. Other partner regions in Europe also took advantage of the opportunity to present short profiles. Initial bilateral contacts were established in open innovation roundtables and these will be intensified in the coming months. The participants agreed that the second SIG meeting had been a success and they look forward to the third SIG meeting which will be held on 27.02.2013 in Stuttgart during the MEDTEC Europe Exhibition.
