Medical Revice Regulattion (MDR) – Importance for medtech start-ups with Prof. Dr. Christoph Russmann (in German)

Online Event

27.05.2021 / 16:00 — 17:00

In May 2021, the new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will come into force. Expert Prof. Dr. Christoph Russmann explains what this regulation means for your start-up.

Prof. Dr. Christoph Russmann is Dean Health at the Health Campus Göttingen and Professor for Photonics and Medical Technology. In his function as professor at HAWK, he is in constant exchange with young innovators who already set the user focus in their academic education. Christoph Russmann is thus sensitized to the impact of a new medical device regulation on the development of MedTech start-ups. This makes him an ideal contact person for questions concerning the approval of medical devices.

The aim of the event is that you get to know the new regulation and what it means for your specific case. We will therefore pick out individual passages of the regulation text and explain on these examples which requirements you must pay attention to. You will also have the opportunity to ask your questions.
