MedTech Europe is the European trade association representing the medical technology industries, from diagnosis to cure. It represents Diagnostics and Medical Devices manufacturers operating in Europe.

At MedTech Europe all aspects of the MedTech industry’s relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) are regulated by the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice, which came into force on 1 January 2017.

This Code has undergone an important change, which is applicable as of 1 January 2018: independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by funds through Educational Support. This will imply a discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs.

Educational Grant supplied to support HCP participation by covering or participating to cover their registrations and/or travelling, accommodataion expenses to Third Party Organised Events, such as 7th National SIGASCOT Congress 2018, will be provided to Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) or Professional Congress Organisers (PCOs).


Application process

For this purpose a dedicated platform has been created for interested HCPs’ direct application in order to have the opportunity to receive one of the Educational Supports made available by the Sponsors of the 7th National SIGASCOT Congress 2018.

Application process will be open soon.
