This Webinar is organised by EFORT independent of any commercial educational support.


Take part in the Final Conference

The CORE-MD project aimed at reviewing methodologies for the clinical evaluation of high-risk medical devices and recommend new designs to set an appropriate balance between innovation, safety, and clinical effectiveness.

After three years of running, this EU-funded project has produced over 15 scientific publications on a wide range of medical device related issues. From recommendation on training needs to an IT tool retrieving publicly available date on device safety notice, the CORE-MD consortium has significantly contributed to support manufacturers, regulators and notified bodies in the implementation of the medical device regulation.

Capitalising on all its outputs, this EU-funded project is organising its Final Conference on Friday 15 March 2024 at the De Warande Club in Brussels, Belgium.

Keynote speakers from the European Commission, Belgian Presidency of the EU and Scientific Societies will take part in this event. The Conference will gather researchers, regulators, notified bodies but also manufacturers and healthcare profesionnals. 

Attendance is free, on a first-come-first-served basis. If you can't make it in person, don't worry, the meeting will be available remotely.
