Though Switzerland is a small country it produces a high volume of cutting edge research and innovative medical therapies. By building active collaborations across multiple disciplines the Swiss medtech industry exploits its intellectual resourcesto produce maximum innovation potential.
Forimtech S.A. is member of Swiss Medical Cluster and gold sponsor of the Swiss Medtech Report 2012.
Many groundbreaking innovations happen at the interface between engineering, medicine and biology. To make optimal use of synergies, the ETHZ founded the Department Health Sciences and Technology (D -HEST) in January 2012 to combine teaching and research in health sciences and medical engineering. Natural scientists and engineers work together in food and nutrition science, medical engineering, movement and sports sciences and neurosciences. The focal area ‘Technology and Knowledge for Health’ will be promoted during 2012-2016 with the transfer of these topics to hospitals being the final goal.
