Technological observatory

A catalyst for knowledge sharing among the Network, the HealthTech ecosystem and the Society. The aim is to monitor scientific and technological developments, so that the members of the network are prepared and can anticipate and orient new projects, products or processes in alignment with future needs ahead of competition. The Technological observatory:

  • Identifies future trends and evolution of the HealthTech sector as a whole.
  • Develops a Technology watch to monitor state of the art technologies and trajectories in the Health sector.
  • Detects market opportunities, new regulatory frameworks, funding proposals, threats envisioned, among other relevant information.
  • Provides best practices related to Technology transfer and open innovation processes with the ultimate goal to facilitate their implementation across Xartec Salut institutions.
