Applications and benefits of Emerging Technologies for Healthcare
26-27 November 2007
TWI Cambridge, UK

Are you looking to learn more about emerging technologies? How are micro and nanotechnologies impacting the healthcare sector?

We invite you to attend this two day seminar to establish how micro and nanotechnologies are already impacting on the healthcare sector by enabling new products, procedures and therapies that match previously un-met clinical needs or deliver more cost effective solutions.

An overview of the applications of current technologies will be explained alongside other topics such as practical issues, medical product development, financing, technology supply chains and case studies. Potential pitfalls will be identified and ways to overcome them revealed.

Who should attend? R&D staff, marketing and business development managers, product development engineers.

You can find more information, including event programme and registration information by emailing Rachel Wall at TWI or alternatively you can find the seminar programme Here.


The Impact of Emerging Technologies on the Production, Mixing, Blending & Packaging of Food
4 October 2007
Sheffield Bioincubator, Sheffield, UK

Are Micro & Nano Technologies Relevant to Innovation in Today’s Food and Nutraceuticals Sectors?

South Yorkshire is home to some of the UK’s pre-eminent Micro and Nanotechnology, and Bioscience research. Together with an existing food manufacturing base this is creating a hot-bed of innovation in the region. In fact, with rapidly growing expertise in its universities and strategic support from government agencies, it is well placed to take advantage – particularly through the supply chain and to leverage international collaboration.

The food industry will not be immune from emerging disruptive or enabling technologies. The challenge is to find out what the impact will be early enough to be able to plan ahead and take the appropriate actions. Realising the value of properly harnessing these technologies will be critical to the continued growth of South Yorkshire’s food and nutraceuticals sectors.

To develop thinking on these topics and to bring together a selected group of influential stakeholders, the Sheffield Bioincubator, Faraday Packaging and TFI Ltd are organising a flagship one day event on 4th October 2007. This flagship event will bring together internationally recognised experts from academia, industry and start-up businesses to explore how emerging technologies will benefit the sector.

Course: Microsystems in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Products
19 - 20 February 2007
Barcelona, Spain

Medical Products and Biomedical engineering are areas where the application of microsystems technology can bring a real breakthrough of new products. Miniaturisation and high reliability are key factors for success in this market. High volume batch production allows the emergence of low cost disposable products. The course will make the attendees aware of the full range of potential applications of microstructures. The case studies will show the full benefits and challenges that have to be overcome when using new technology, particularly microsystems.Practical guidance on how to plan a successful medical product development will be given.
Target group

The course appeals to a wide range of R&D staff, marketing and business development managers and engineers from industry as well as biochemical and clinical technicians.
