Sustainability project for the European MedTech industry
The project idea
SysteMA (Systemic Design and Sustainable Healthcare for MedTech Manufacturing) is an educational project funded by EIT Manufacturing that addresses the formative challenges of sustainable healthcare for the European MedTech industry.
The demand for sustainability in the industry has grown in recent years, and the current pandemic has further exacerbated EU healthcare systems’ concerns about their environmental impact. The demand for green procurement, sustainable products/services and higher environmental standards is likely to increase significantly. However, EU industries have few tools to fill knowledge gaps on sustainable health issues and seize opportunities for innovation.
CUSTOMIZED ONLINE TRAINING
The project will develop an online training program to address this need, offering customized learning paths based on the starting level and sustainability goals that MedTech professionals and students aim to acquire.
THE PROJECT CONSORTIUM
SysteMA brings together an international partnership of academia (Politecnico di Torino, IT – coordinator), sustainable healthcare networks (TEM Foundation, SE), large MedTech companies (GVS, IT and Stryker, IE) and industrial districts (Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero, IT and Upper Silesian Entrepreneurship and Development Agency, PL).
