The City of Mannheim’s cluster strategy provides an excellent environment for companies, hospitals, research institutions, start-ups and talents to be successful and innovative.
An important signal of Mannheim’s development towards a MedTech Hotspot was set in September 2012. The medical device research program „Mannheim Molecular Intervention Environment“ (M2OLIE) is one of ten winners of the federal competition “ Research campus - public-private partnership for Innovation”. It includes a federal government funding of up to €30 million over a period of up to 15 years to facilitate public-private cooperations between academia and industry to develop the “Interventional OR of the Future” for cancer treatment.
This success is based on the pooling of resources of several leading research institutions and companies in Mannheim and the region. Key partners are the Medical Faculty Mannheim and the Institute of Medical Technology (IMT).
Joining forces is key to succeed. Become a partner of the Mannheim Medical Technology Cluster and learn more about your opportunities in Mannheim.
