Regener8 2016 – call for content submissions now open

February 10, 2016

Regener8 and the Medical Technologies IKC are to host a one-day conference, focussing on best practice in translating regenerative devices – a potential £1bn industry in the UK.

This year a session of the conference will be opened up for community-sourced content.  This means anyone (who fulfils the criteria) can apply to present. Shortlisted proposals will go to a vote across the Regener8 and wider med tech community to decide who they most want to see and hear.

If your proposal is shortlisted for the vote but does not win, you may be selected to provide content as an article for Regener8’s annual magazine, Regen, or for our websites.

Criteria for session proposals
To propose a session for the Regener8-IKC Annual Conference the proposer/proposal must:
• present a challenge within the scope of our Centres:
The translation of university and industry research in regenerative devices (regenerative therapies delivered as Class III medical devices) into commercial products and clinical benefits
• show a collaborative approach to solving the challenge/project, for example, working with academia, industry, clinicians, regulatory experts, IP experts
• include a partner (e.g. academic, industry or clinical to complement the role of the proposer)

The strongest proposals will include a mixture of perspectives in solving the challenge, e.g. clinical, industrial, academic, regulatory.

What happens to runners up?
Proposal shortlisted by our judging panel may be selected to provide content as an article for Regener8’s annual magazine, Regen, for our websites, or to present a poster at the conference

How do I submit the session proposal?
Further details can be found on the annual conference web page.

The deadline for submissions is 4 March 2015.
