Safe N Medtech
Safety testing in the life cycle of nanotechnology-enabled medical technologies for health
SAFE-N-MEDTECH is a project funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 (GA 814607); it is an Innovation Action, aimed at supporting the creation of the so-called “Innovation Test Beds”, for assessing the safety of medical devices.
The project aims to create an innovative, distributed and open access platform capable of offering companies and research centers the skills, competences, know-how, network and all the services necessary for the development, testing, evaluation, industrialization and commercial exploitation of medical and diagnostic devices based on nanotechnologies.
In fact, for some years now, medical devices based on nano-technologies have been developing for practically every medical field, with a growing importance in the fields of cancer treatment, regenerative medicine, advanced therapies, neurology, cardiology, orthopedics and dentistry.
While it is true that any innovation in the medical field must be carefully evaluated not only in terms of safety but also in terms of cost / benefit ratio, medical devices based on nanotechnologies require particular attention, both for their complexity and because their evaluations from a technological point of view are still ongoing.
An international partnership for a quick market access
Safe-n-Medtech, therefore, brings together within a single platform the skills of 28 international partners from all over the world, according to a multi-disciplinary approach, market-oriented and based on a deep knowledge and understanding of the characteristics and of the properties of nano-materials, of their advanced methods of use in the field of medical devices and of all other aspects related to safety (e.g. electrical compatibility, electromagnetic properties, etc.).
The development and implementation of the platform will speed up access to the market for medical technologies based on nanotechnologies.
