Medtech in ModenaI recently spent a couple of days touring the province of Modena in Italy at the invitation of the Chamber of Commerce. The region has graced the world with Ferrari and Maserati automobiles and Luciano Pavarotti—not to mention fine cuisine and wine—but I went to Modena to learn about its other claim to fame as a crucible of medical technology.

Medtech World News: From Germany

One of the stops during my visit of the biomedical district was a center of innovation, research and clinical experimentation at the Polyclinic of Modena. Here, the Quality Center Network (QCN) was founded in 2005 to connect biomedical companies with university research programs and to create a knowledge-exchange platform. Partnering with other local universities and industry associations, the QCN is coordinated by the DemocenterSipe, a regional organization for the transfer of university research results to various companies.

“We created the Quality Center Network for several reasons,” says Stefano Cencetti, General Director AOU Polyclinic of Modena. “One is to train medical students on the use of biomedical devices and another is to share scientific and technological know how with companies in the biomedical sector and help them develop new products.”
