Based on lessons learnt from the AMiCI meeting in Heerlen (November 2016), the focus of the second meeting, planned in June 2017 in Pori (Finland), will move to the expertise within the working groups.
The framework program of the meeting:
Day 1 (6th of June)
The Conference ‘Antimicrobial coatings in healthcare: from innovation to the market’.
Key-note speakers will cover issues along the AMC value chain; from patents, regulatory, implementation in hospitals, to evaluation of the impact taken from a real life example. The conference will target researchers, coating and hygiene industries, healthcare and hygiene managers , health insurance organisations and policy makers at national and EU level. The maximal number of participants is 100. Students from SAMK will support the organisation of the conference.
Researchers are invited to bring along a poster of their research work. Companies and other organisations related to the AMiCI topic are invited to present their activities and services in a booth. Exhibition of posters and booths will take place during day 1 and may remain for day 2. A separate mail will be sent to register for this.
