The mission is organized by de RVO, the department of Foreign Affairs, postal network in Germany, collaboration with  Task Force Health Care and FME, and is led by Minister Lilliane Ploumen. Dutch (starting) entrepreneurs and employees of knowlegde institutions are visiting Germany to promote trade,  mutual investment and technological collaboration.

The mission is interesting for organizations and knowledge institutions which operate in the medical technology. Especially for product development and digital/ e-health starters. Important is that the product or service adds value to development- and productionchains of medical tools and devices, and new knowledge and products around digital and electronical healthcare solutions, like Telemedicine, Mobile Health, Home Care, Serious Gaming en ICT.

Germany as trading partner
Germany is one of our most important trading partners, for either import as export. In Germany healthcare is one of the most important focus points. This is shown in the added value of the healthcare in the German economy. At the same time Germany has the same trends in healthcare as in the Netherlands: aging, digitization and rising healthcare costs.

Important social issues are the posibillities to make healthcare more affordable and accessible, while increasing the quality of care. Germany has an excellent reputation when it comes to innovative technologies in healthcare.

During the mission the delegation will make several visits in Munich and Nuremberg. The program of the mission you'll find here.
