Innovative projects in biotech and medical technology in hospitals and companies will get a helping hand in the Mid-Jutland region with the foundation of MedTech Innovation Center (MTIC) which the region is financing to the tune of DKK 35m (USD 6m), reports Erhvervsbladet.
 
MTIC will be located in Denmark's second city of Århus, and on 1 December the center's managing director, Trine Winterø, takes up her post. Her job will be to bring ideas and research from the region's hospitals and companies to commercial products in the form of new medicines or medical equipment.
 
Part of MTIC's budget will be invested in projects with global potential. In addition, MTIC will create networks, find collaboration partners and pass on knowledge and competences to companies. Trine Winterø comments to Erhvervsbladet that MTIC has its own niche area of operation where it is quite unique and distinct from other players.
 
"I am not aware of anything like it elsewhere in the country," says Winterø. "The unique aspect is that companies have a place they can refer to when they want an external sparring partner to boost their business development. We can help them formulate an operational plan, to get innovative ideas out into the real world," says Winterø, who is trained in molecular genetics and has experience in technology transfer.
