Workshop III, 3 March 2006, Stockholm
The third Fobis workshop was organized by FOI, which has been active in the area of biosensors and biomedical sensors for more than 25 years. The workshop was also supported by Uminova Innovation, BioTech Umeå and CMTF, which brings together leading expertise in the area of biomedical engineering from northern Sweden.
The purpose of the third workshop was to try to answer the question “How do we get there?” and discuss and establish technology premises and boundaries. Technology-driven scenarios were discussed and hands-on examples on sensor implementation in the healthcare sector were presented. Other topics for the workshop were to discuss and establish market enablers and restrictions and discuss the role of health care authorities and other public organs. The workshop included world-leading sensor experts and key stake holders and policy makers representing the health care sector and society.
