MedTech Europe is an Alliance of European medical technology industry associations. The Alliance was founded in October 2012 and currently has two members being EDMA, representing the European in vitro diagnostic industry, and Eucomed, representing the European medical devices industry. Other European medical technology associations are welcome to join the Alliance. MedTech Europe, EDMA and Eucomed remain separate entities but are led by one joint Chief Executive and work closely together on common policy interest areas.
The Alliance was established to represent the common policy interests of its members more effectively and efficiently. Its mission is to make value-based, innovative medical technology available to more people, while supporting the transformation of healthcare systems onto a sustainable path.
To achieve this goal, MedTech Europe promotes a balanced policy environment that enables the medical technology industry to meet the growing healthcare needs and expectations of its stakeholders. In addition, the Alliance demonstrates the value of medical technology by encouraging its members to execute the industry's 5-year strategy, which focuses on value-based innovations and increased stakeholder relations, through health-economic research and data collection, through clear communications, and through organising industry events and trainings.
