The medium-term goal of all Medical Valley EMN partners is to develop products and services that significantly increase efficiency and effectiveness in the fields of prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation.

The long-term strategy of the Medical Valley EMN is to optimise the structures of healthcare provision. Medical Valley EMN e.V. brings together all parties to establish an international model region of optimized healthcare provision.

The cluster’s strength is its power of innovation. Businesses and research institutes in the Medical Valley EMN benefit from short distances to develop best-in-class research and development processes.

These in turn result in competitive advantages and growth opportunities in a global market. Healthcare providers benefit from access to state-of-the-art technologies and cost minimising.

Cluster management encourages these developments and strengthens the market positioning of the brand Medical Valley EMN. Thus the region is associated with excellence in healthcare provision and perceived as more and more attractive both in Germany and internationally.

As the global market share and sales revenues increase, the economic power of the region is strengthened. This approach enables us to secure and create jobs.


Voices from the Medical Valley Community

The linking of various disciplines creates an opportunity for new projects, products and innovation. Research and teaching form an important part of this active interdisciplinary collaboration.
Dr. Christoph Pinkwart, ITZB Nürnberg, Innovations- und Technologiezentrum Bayern: Medical Valley brings together capable people in medical technology, thus managing to pick up on good ideas, test them in hospitals, and market products. This valuable work improves patient care and creates jobs.
