Who we are

Our story

The TechMed Event is a joint effort by the TechMed Centre of the University of Twente and WTC Twente in Hengelo, in collaboration with members of the MedTech Twente cluster.

The first edition of the collaboration between The Technical Medical Centre and WTC Twente took place in 2020. For this, both organizations organized their own MedTech events: The TechMed Event, with a strong focus on science and business, and the WTC Twente organized the Medical Devices Meetings Twente, which attracted various companies in and outside Europe to explore collaborations with the MedTech Twente community. If you want to view these previous editions, click here.
