Translational Research Symposium—collaborative efforts as driving forces of healthcare innovation. Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, 30(12), 133. doi:10.1007/s10856-019-6339-2
The 5th Translational Research Symposium was organised at the annual meeting of the European Society for Biomaterials 2018, Maastricht, the Netherlands, with emphasis on the future of emerging and smart technologies for healthcare in Europe. Invited speakers from academia and industry highlighted the vision and expectations of healthcare in Europe beyond 2020 and the perspectives of innovation stakeholders, such as small and medium enterprises, large companies and Universities. The aim of the present article is to summarise and explain the main statements made during the symposium, with particular attention on the need to identify unmet clinical needs and their efficient translation into healthcare solutions through active collaborations between all the participants involved in the value chain.
