Expert Class 4 – morning session – Health Technology Assessment & Reimbursement

In this Expert Class, you will learn what Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is and how health technologies can have an impact on society. Closely linked to HTA is reimbursement. Health insurers are not automatically allowed to provide cover for any new medicine that comes onto the market. Governments decide what drugs fall under the standard health insurance package. Both topics are of utmost importance to life sciences and medtech startups.

Expert Class 5 – afternoon session – Communication & Branding

In this fast-moving industry, the survival of any brand relies heavily on its ability to distinguish itself sufficiently to connect with stakeholders, future partners, buyers and more. As a life sciences entrepreneur, you know that the importance of credibility simply cannot be underestimated. Therefore take communications seriously and start right from the beginning. In this 2nd edition of the communication Expert Class, the focus will be: Design.


We have invited representatives from the following organizations: Association Innovative Medicines, MDxHealth, UMotion, Loyens & Loeff, Achmea, Utrecht Inc., Studio Casual Fiend, Demcon Nymus3D, Science Affairs.
