The MedTech Accelerator® is a Belgian national initiative developed by lifetech.brussels, MedTech Flanders & MedTech Wallonia.
We want to accelerate the MedTech innovation potential present in each Region capitalizing
on the expertise, infrastructure and ecosystems available on the national territory.
