The EWMA Innovation Forum: Innovative technologies in wound healing

Overcoming the hurdles from idea to market

Why participate?

Are you looking for:

  • a partner to realize your innovative wound healing solution?
  • new solutions to broaden your portfolio?
  • an investment opportunity?
  • expertise on how to overcome the hurdles from idea to market?

Well, look no furhter. EMWA strives actively to create a supportive environment, where European wound healing clinical studies are performed, and where innovative companies execute their visions and reach their goals. The EWMA Innovation Forum adresses the unmet needs in wound care and gives investors and innovators the opportunity to meet and create fruitful connections. 


Who should participate?

New, innovative as well as established companies within wound care, potential spinouts from clinics and universities, and investors with an interest in healthcare.

One of the prime objectives of EWMA is to enhance the development and availability of innovative wound care solutions for physicians and their patients in Europe. With this in mind, EMWA wants to foster the development of innovative wound healing products from “bench to bed side” by enhancing contacts between innovative companies, established companies who already collaborate with EWMA, and investors. Thereby, creating and facilitating opportunities for strategic investment and partnerships, joint development, licensing, and merger and acquisition.



The EWMA Innovation Forum will last one full day.

The morning sessions will focus on new innovative companies and potential spinouts with topics like funding and financing, clinical trials, strategic partnerships, and merger and acquisition (see below “Be a part of shaping the programme”).

The afternoon will contain three match-making tracks:

  1. Meet the investors
  2. Meet the industrial partners
  3. Meet the EWMA Business support team

Meetings can be planned and booked in advance using the EWMA match making tool. During the afternoon there will be breaks where you can listen to pitches of innovative companies and potential spinouts presenting their commercially interesting ideas. 

Mingling and networking is prioritized during the day, frequent coffee breaks give you the chance to connect with your potential partners in an informal way. EWMA provides space in the plenary room for your roll-ups, and a table for display of your materials.


Be part of shaping the programme 

EWMA is determined to make this forum outstanding in its field and is therefore interested in creating the best possible program. This is of course only possible through active participations of the different stakeholders involved. Which is why EWMA will be conducting interviews throughout the autumn of 2022 to identify particuar interests and needs as well as challenges new, innovative companies face when entering the market. The EWMA Innovation Forum will focus on attracting investors, finding partners, obtaining product evidence, and attempts to reach the market.

If you like to participate in such an interview with EMWA, lasting 30 minutes to one hour, please contact Peter Frank. Find contact details above under “Who should participate”.

The EWMA Innovation Forum is organized in collaboration with Excite InternationalExcite Europe and CAP Partner.
