Join us on a trade mission to Germany and establish contacts with leading German hospital groups, healthcare insurers and group purchasing organisations (GPOs) and get key insights in their procurement and purchasing structures.
In just a few days, you will visit and network with the renowned public, university and private hospitals in the region, exchange knowledge and expertise, and learn about local challenges in healthcare of the federal states of Bavaria and Baden Württemberg. Additionally, you connect with potential partners, agents/distributors, customers and important decisionmakers in the German healthcare sector. This trade mission is organised by Task Force Health Care, InnovationQuarter and the NBSO Stuttgart
The programme consists of the following parts:
- Collective visits to University Hospitals (e.g. Heidelberg), Public Hospitals and Private Hospital Groups (e.g. Sana Kliniken)
- Networking moments such as a trade dinner and receptions to network (informally) with key stakeholders.
- Knowledge sharing and networking with other Dutch participants of this mission and participants of the Smart Mobility mission.
- Support from TFHC (sector expert), Innovation Quarter and NBSO Stuttgart (Germany Expert)
- Partnering with potential partners/distributors and customers facilitated by Enterprise Europe Network (though a broad amount of partners in southern Germany will be invited, we cannot give off guarantees about the number of meetings).
Opportunities in Baden Württemberg & Bavaria
Baden Württemberg and Bavaria are among the wealthiest federal states of Germany and are at the centre of the German medical industry. Only topped by North Rhine Westphalia, Bavaria and Baden Württemberg account for the largest part of German GDP: respectively 18,1 and 15,2 percent. Not only are these federal states among the wealthiest, but they are also in the top three of most populous German federal states with 12,5 and 10,7 million inhabitants.
Moreover, southern Germany is home to some of the largest and most renowned healthcare facilities in Germany such as Sana Kliniken (HQ: München), Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg and Universitätsklinikum Ulm.
