EDMA, the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association, and Eucomed, the European medical technology industry association, are pleased to announce that their respective members have decided to join forces under the umbrella of a European industry federation.
Uniting the experience and expertise of the two Brussels based industry associations (representing the In Vitro Diagnostics and the medical technology industry), this move aims to enhance the recognition of their joint membership at European level. Speaking with one voice, the federation will be uniquely positioned to address common issues of interest and provide stakeholders with a comprehensive view on the latest technological advances and value-based innovations.
The creation of a European industry federation builds on the longstanding relationship between the two associations and aims to form the basis for even greater cooperation in the future, so as to ensure the place of IVDs and medical technology at the forefront of twenty-first century healthcare and healthcare policy.
