Research institutes, hospitals and clinical experts

They will display their research projects under development and innovation impact while connecting with social capital, innovation & service institutions, manufacturing and marketing enterprises to enable them speed up completion of their projects. They will demonstrate their competitive edge in scientific research to cooperate with large scale R&D projects.

Innovation, service and investment institutions

Stronger linkages will be created with research projects under development by clinical experts, research institutions and hospitals while jointly scaling up their early services, investment and professional incubation. 

Materials and accessories suppliers

Based on China's top innovation service platform, they will promote or connect with a large number of research projects and start-ups while accessing unlimited business opportunities in the medical device industry,
