Joint US-German Innovation in Digital Health
We invited you to join us for the opening of the Matchmaking Tour. The virtual presenting event featured a speech from the German Embassy Washington and Fraunhofer USA, a professional panel and pitches from the visiting Research-SME-Tandems of InnoHealth USA. As a final part of the program, you had the opportunity to network with the tandems in the virtual hallways. This was an extraordinary opportunity to connect with representatives from the U.S. and Germany, and to learn about technologies and solutions in the fields of AI-enabled healthcare, medical devices, and digitization that are changing the future of healthcare. We enjoyed your participation!

The Matchmaking Tour in the US will be supplemented by a following digital Post-Matching. Thus, we are supporting the winning Research-SME-Tandems to meet potential US-partners - and vice versa - after the Matchmaking Tour. As a complementary follow up for the local networking events during the Matchmaking Tour, the participants of the Post-Matching get the opportunity to exchange initial ideas and test the compatibility with potential partners.
In addition, the German participants of InnoHealth USA can also identify potential US participants for participation in the German R&D Tour.
