Why do medical technology companies need EU Representation?
Because an increasing number of decisions that impact the European business environment for the medical technology industry are made at EU level or influenced by the EU. To fully understand the potential impact of these decisions, and to have effective input into the policymaking process requires relevant expertise and knowledge. MedTech Europe, with its internal competences and extensive knowledge of, and partnerships with, key European institutions, decision-makers and processes, can provide members with invaluable guidance.
In addition, members can benefit from a strong industry presence at a global level; MedTech Europe can provide the European voice at the appropriate forums. The MedTech Europe team can also offer essential support to members’ European business operations and make sure that your interests are represented at a European policy level.
