The traditional manufacturing sector in the EU faces a crisis due to the increasing labor costs in comparison to non EU countries. Thus manufacturing companies must find new markets with products with a higher added value.
One of these sectors is Healthcare Technology. In this sector, companies can develop new healthcare products with high added value by applying advanced knowledge and expertise. In order to successfully diversify to that sector and to do it in a relatively short period of time, one of the key points is the training of companies’ staff in three main topics: Moreover, due to the continuous changes in the medical device regulations (EC Directives, standards), it is necessary to provide training in these issues also to staff of those companies which are already in the healthcare technology sector.
