New EARTO paper: Accelerating the Digitisation and Market Access of Emerging Technologies for Healthcare

In view of the preparation of the next EU Framework Programme Horizon Europe as well as the EU Digital Europe Programme, the EARTO Working Group Emerging Technologies for Healthcare would like to present its four policy recommendations for the future of Healthcare research policies:

  1. Maturation of health technologies (from research to proof of concept ready for clinical studies) is a risky process: special incentives for RTOs to accelerate market access should be organised
  2. Support KETs (Key Enabling Technologies) projects and infrastructures to answer to the needs of innovative medtech SMEs
  3. Digital Europe initiatives for Healthcare should focus on security/reliability/availability of medical data
  4. Connecting Innovation Regional Hubs in health technologies would increase RTOs impact

A detailed analysis of those recommendations is available in the attached paper.
