Bridging network with knowledge

The 25th EFORT annual Congress in Hamburg, Germany from 22 to 24 May 2024 proudly reintroduces the EFORT Marketplace, positioned at the very heart of the exhibition.

In response to feedback and to enhance the experience for congress participants, several adjustments have been made:

Within the Marketplace,

the Research Café now boasts

its own dedicated infrastructure, fostering an atmosphere conducive to intimate discussions and providing increased privacy.

We maintain the essence of

Mini-Satellites providing information about the latest products and developments within the MedTech industry in an environment allowing for greater interaction.

EFORT offers regular free webinars throughout the year.

Curated by the Education Committee, Webinar Essentials is a selection promising an invaluable learning opportunity.

Join us into this enriching series together.

EFORT is thrilled to introduce an innovative addition for the segment Surgical Precision: the "Best of" World Surgery Tours by Rimasys will offer insights into global practices.

Additionally, you can sign up for 3 distinct Surgical Skills Workshops by B.Braun Aesculape, Avanos and Meril Healthcare.

As for “Bridging networking with knowledge”, our commitment remains unchanged: Best Posters and National Papers will be showcased in the Marketplace.

Have you missed the very last webinar wrapping up the project?

The CORE-MD consortium organised its last webinar. It focused on The Notified Body’s Role & The Conformity Assessment Process moderated by Prof. Alan Fraser, BioMed Alliance, Scientific Coordinator of CORE-MD.

This webinar is now available for replay.

The aims of this webinar were:

  • To understand the role of Notified Bodies in the evaluation process of Medical Devices. 
  • To understand the conformity assessment process performed by Notifies Bodies.
  • To discuss the role and challenges of Notifies Bodies in the implementation of the Medical Device Regulation.

CORE-MD is a European Union Horizon 2020 project. It reviews methods for evaluating high-risk medical devices in order to translate expert evidence into advice for EU regulators and to recommend an appropriate balance between innovation, safety , and clinical effectiveness.
