Atlantic KET MED is the Interreg Atlantic Area project that supports SMEs and Start-ups in using Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) to produce next-generation medical devices.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is a partner in the EU funded programme, offering access to technical support and facilities in additive manufacturing (3D printing) for medical technology SME’s across the Atlantic area of the EU.
The webinar will provide insight and guidance into the product development process for medtech innovation, focused on additive manufacturing and the importance of early product design considerations to inform suitable material selection and prototype development. We will also share information on facilities, equipment and expertise available to bring your products to life and a number of use cases in medical technologies.
