Festival of Innovation

in MedTech

16-20 September 2019 | Bucharest, Romania

Endorsed by:

SSIMA Re:Imagine Healthcare

Festival of Innovation in MedTech

SSIMA is the annual international MedTech festival in Eastern Europe, covering topics related to medical technology, such as: Deep Learning  and Big Data in Healthcare, Medical Imaging, Medical Sensors and Robots and AI-based Data Analysis.

It covers these topics from academic, business and public policy perspectives, with the explicit aim of increasing relationships between Eastern European academics, companies and governments and their global counterparts. As the only MedTech event in Eastern Europe endorsed by MICCAI society, we feel privileged to have a wide audience, crossing international borders, in our pursuit of these purposes.

SSIMA’s speakers in past years include professors from MIT, Johns Hopkins, Harvard University, French Academy of Sciences, Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Eindhoven University and many others. National level policy makers and representatives from multinational companies have also participated. SSIMA is the place to learn, connect and decide on all MedTech matters concerning you or your organization.
