Workshop Description

The Workshop "Access to Information for the Development of Medical Devices: Operational and Regulatory Aspects" has as main objectives:

  • • Promote interaction and common learning among the participating entities;
  • • Consolidate the knowledge and conclusions of the working meetings of the Action Groups;
  • • Familiarize the entities of the MDevNet network with the contents of the Best Practices Manual;
  • • Facilitate clarification of existing doubts regarding the certification and regulation of medical devices.


To this end, the event will be dynamic, in which participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other and participate in activities that allow the joint discussion of issues related to the Medical Device Regulation, with the help of the preliminary version of the "Best Practices Manual for Technology Transfer in the Technology Based Medical Devices Sector", worked by Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS . After this activity, participants are also expected to identify and propose content to be incorporated into the final version of the Manual, in order to bring the document closer to the needs of the audience.
