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.
