Med-Tech scale up Journey

We are honored to have participated in the Med-Tech scale up Journey event organized by the Greek Embassy in London and the London Institute for Healthcare Engineering, discussing with select medtech companies and senior public and private industry leaders. The discussions led to positive and forward-looking insights, noting that ‘Greece can be a test – country’ for med-tech #investment. This exciting outlook is further underpinned by the ‘existence of a high caliber scientific community in Greece’.

Our Managing Partner Ioanna Michalopoulou shared the 3rd panel with noted speakers such as Dr. Haris Lambropoulos (HDBI), Maria-Cristina (Maritina) Grelloni (Endeavor), Thanasis Kotsanis (Bayer), and Fragiskos Theofylaktos (Εlevate Greece), discussing the links that can be established between Greece and the UK for the med-tech industry.

As it turned out, circumstances are ripe for such links, as Greece has got the legal framework to support such partnerships. More specifically, as noted by Ioanna Michalopoulou our country has pioneered the legislation for secondary use of healthdata – already in place since 2010 – and is fast moving towards aligning its legal framework with EU on the med-tech front.
