Attracting Investments in European HealthTech Leaders at the first HTID Conference in Paris

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 14 maggio 2019

The first edition of the HealthTech Investor Days (HTID) will take place in Paris on June 24th and 25th 2019. This new forum will help 100 late-stage European HealthTech companies secure the development of new medicines and therapeutic solutions. Launched by France Biotech with the support of the European health innovation ecosystem, HTID will facilitate one-on-one meetings between European health entrepreneurs, international investors and major pharmaceutical companies. The two-day event will also feature a dozen plenary meetings on global issues in health innovation.Europe is a major player in medicine of the future thanks to the excellence of its scientific research and the growing number of innovative HealthTech companies. It is home to 3,000 biotechs and 27,000 medtechs according to European sources EuropaBio and Medtech Europe.Europe’s potential in health innovation is hampered by the structural weakness in funding for the sector which requires large capital investments and long-term financing. The development of a new drug from benchside research to the market takes ten to fifteen years on average. For medical devices, the development process usually lasts three to seven years.In the past two years, investment in HealthTech companies around the world has been rising sharply. However, Europe has benefited only partially from this trend. In 2017, the global amount of funds raised in the HealthTech sector in Europe (via venture capital and IPOs) reached € 6.2 billion (source: EY). This represents less than a third of the funds raised in the United States alone during the same period (€ 19.8 billion). In 2018, the European investment deficit increased further with a total of 5.8 billion euros funds raised (down 6.5% compared to 2017). Meanwhile, 27 billion euros (+ 36.3%) were invested in HealthTech in the United States. This means that American health innovation now attracts five times more investment than European health innovation.HTID is a response to this crucial need for financing and support by the industry. The event will take place on an annual basis to help overcome this lack of investment in the European HealthTech sector.

Topcon Featured in Keynote Presentation at SAP Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 maggio 2019

Topcon Positioning Group announces it was featured today in a keynote presentation at SAP’s annual SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. The presentation titled “Manage Digital Disruption to Outperform Your Competition” by Christian Klein, chief operating officer and member of the executive board of SAP SE, highlighted how digitalization is forcing companies to rethink the way they deliver products and services to customers. At the presentation, Topcon and SAP demonstrated a road ecosystem that can deliver information quickly and efficiently in a scalable way by combining Topcon precision measurement and paving control expertise with SAP’s leadership as a business- and technology software provider.Kris Cowles, Topcon VP, global application IT, said, “We are finding smart and completely new ways to tap into more data than ever before to achieve game-changing outcomes in the digital era.” According to the Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board, in 2014, traffic congestion wasted 6.9 billion hours of motorists’ time and consumed approximately 3.1 billion gallons of gasoline. Motorists had to pay more than $100 billion in additional auto repair and operating costs annually, due to damage and wear resulting from substandard road quality and road hazards. Poor road infrastructure led to an increase in traffic fatalities by 7% from 2014 to 2015, per the American Society of Civil Engineering.To help meet these challenges, SAP and Topcon teamed up to demonstrate how components of the Topcon revolutionary SmoothRide road resurfacing system can be combined with SAP technology to create a new innovative platform to improve road infrastructure.Ray O’Connor, president and CEO of Topcon Positioning Group, said, “We collaborate and innovate using disruptive technology to meet the growing demands of the world. We have reached a crossroad where we now live in an incredible age of digital transformation and have the means to make changes in infrastructure and agriculture aided by modern technology.”

Conference reviews draft law on freedom of religion or belief in Montenegro

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 8 maggio 2019

The Conference of European Churches (CEC) in cooperation with the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Montenegro and Littoral, organised in Podgorica, an academic conference on “Freedom of Religion or Belief in Montenegro” bringing together renowned international experts on the fundamental right to freedom of religion or belief.The main focus of the academic discourse was the draft Law on Freedom of Religion, which has been the centre of severe criticism by both human rights lawyers and religious representatives for a while. The draft law has been almost unanimously rejected by these experts and stakeholders.
In his greetings, His Eminence Metropolitan Professor Dr Amfilohije (Radovic), Bishop of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and Littoral in the Serbian Orthodox Church, emphasised that the law, if enacted, would not only limit religious freedom, but can severely threaten the legacy of Eastern Orthodoxy in the region.CEC President Rev. Christian Krieger, urged the government of Montenegro to not unilaterally pass such a law, but to engage in a constructive dialogue on the issue with churches and religious communities, in order to find best possible solutions, in accordance with the international human rights standards.In a video message to the conference, the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, Mr Ahmed Shaheed expressed his hope, “that the government of Montenegro, taking into account the concerns raised, and suggestions provided by different stakeholders, will consider revising the draft law so it becomes compatible with international human rights standards promoting the right to freedom of religion or belief.” Key concerns about the legality of the draft law under the international human rights regime, to which Montenegro subscribed in several international conventions, covers the restrictive provisions concerning registration of religious communities. This includes the plan to seize and disappropriate all church property, which dates back to the time before 1918, and restrictions on freedom of thought, opinion and expression, imposed on religious entities.The experts, including members of the European Consortium for Church and State Research, professors of international law and human rights called upon the government to revise the draft so it becomes compliant with the European Convention on Human Rights and EU legislation. This is particularly important as Montenegro has applied to join the European Union, which is not only an economic entity, but also a community of law and common values.
