This event was the opportunity to meet many experts and set-up new collaborations.
IMODE is a collaborative research project for multicomponent pharmaceutical products (co-amorphous and co-crystals) and medical devices that are loaded with bioactive molecules. Started in 2016, the IMODE project is funded by the European Interreg 2 Seas programme and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

MDTex is an ambitious project aiming to bring together the textile and the health industry to gather expertise of these two topics. This network will foster the creation of R&D and industrial projects in the domain of medical textile by giving to the main actors the chance to meet, discuss, collaborate, and create opportunities. By sourcing directly, the needs of health professionals (Medical doctors, nurses …), the project will guide, in an open-innovation framework, the creation of consortium making projects that will answer directly to the needs of patients.
