Discover the Cluster Medical and Health Technology and the medical engineering region Saxony-Anhalt

The area of health and medical science is one of the five lead markets defined in the innovation strategy for the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. There are many driving forces for innovation in the medical technologies that are the key to competitive products in this future market. One central factor is a high medical demand, mainly as a result of demographic change and a significant increase in the prevalence of chronic illnesses. Other aspects are the trends to more individualisation, miniaturisation and biologisation.

The outcome of this is a significant technological and medically demand-oriented “innovation potential” that businesses in Saxony-Anhalt can capitalise.

The main goal of the Cluster Medical and Health Technology is to strengthen the competitiveness of Saxony-Anhalt as a leading region for medical technologies. Joining medical-technical businesses and research institutions in a cluster will help to more efficiently develop improved and innovative diagnostic and therapeutic methods as well as medical-technical equipment.

Focus points are therefore to intensify knowledge transfer and innovative activities by strengthening existing research and development cooperation between companies and research institutions. The integration of expert knowledge and state-of-the-art technologies in regional companies will result in long-term innovative products.
