The Regulatory Journey – Product innovation training for startups

Danish Life Science Cluster is hosting a series of meetings that will ensure you get familiar with Medical Device Regulations or In Vitro Diagnostics Regulations and avoid you loose important time and money in your developing process.

Regulations are an important part of the innovation process and product development.

Are you part of a Med-tech or health-tech start-up developing medical equipment for diagnostic purposes, treatment, or disease prevention? Do you have sufficient knowledge about the regulatory laws and regulations applying to your product?

This unique training will provide you with baseline knowledge on regulatory compliance and give you access to workshops and local experts. And it’s all free of charge.

Knowledge about the regulations of your solution is important when:

  • Deciding your intended purpose
  • Every iteration of your solution (hardware or software)
  • Choosing suppliers
  • In clinical investigation
  • And many more…

The regulatory journey is for companies who are in their developing process. It is important to have the regulations in mind from the early product development stage.

The training aims to give you the necessary knowledge, tools, and feedback for regulatory compliance.

The program will provide detailed insight into the regulatory laws and regulations. Knowledge that is essential as part of the innovation process to define the intended purpose and develop your product in compliance with the regulations.

The focus will be on medical device regulation (MDR), equipment for in vitro diagnostics (IVDR), and medical software.

What do you get out of participating?

The program will support to ensure that the products and services you develop will fulfill the criteria for legislation, special requirements, and standards for obtaining CE marking.

The activities will e.g., help you to find the right consulting services for your need and when to make use of test facilities during the product development – to ensure certification of your product.

At the end of the program you will present the regulatory strategy that fits your product and your company.
