GACC Midwest’s Transatlantic Cluster Initiative brings US Health Care and Medical Technology organizations to Germany

From October 16-20, 2017, 14 US Health Care delegates will visit Germany in order to learn more about the German Health Care market.

The American health care experts from Indiana, Minnesota, New York, Tennessee, and Washington will visit the brand new telemedicine center at the university clinic Aachen, 3M Germany, the medtech start up scene in Bavaria, Siemens Health Care, and the medtech Innovationforum at the Medical Mountains cluster in Tuttlingen.
Together with their German peers, they will discuss the latest developments in the fields of telemedicine/telematics and rehabilitation and prevention; digital health and personalized medecine; and entrepreneurship in health care; as well as additive manufacturing.
The whole trip will be complemented by site visits to German market leaders in health care and medical technologies.
The goal of the program is to establish long-lasting business relationships and to, foster a sustainable and collaborative culture of innovation between Germany and the United States. The program is part of the Transatlantic Cluster Initiative and organized by the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, Inc. (GACC Midwest). It is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy through the European Recovery Program (ERP).
