KIELTYKA GLADKOWSKI KG LEGAL takes part in the project “Systemic Design and Sustainable Healthcare for MedTech Manufacturing (SysteMA)”. One of elements of the project is led by the Life Science Cluster in Krakow and the MedSilesia cluster. The latter became involved in activities to raise awareness and knowledge in the field of the circular economy.
The research is part of the EIT Manufacturing project SysteMA (Systemic Design and Sustainable Healthcare for MedTech Manufacturing), which focuses on the role of MedTech manufacturing towards the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of healthcare systems. The project aims to create online training courses on this topic, providing EU companies with actionable skills to improve the sustainability of their products and processes and seize new market opportunities.
The aim of the research is to define the sustainability knowledge and actions that EU MedTech companies have already undertaken. This will allow project partners to define effective training paths according to the actual state of the sector.
The demand for green procurement, sustainable products/services, and higher environmental standards, is set to increase dramatically. However, companies, especially SMEs, have few tools to fill the knowledge gaps on sustainable healthcare issues. The training programme aims to address this need by offering learning paths tailored according to the starting level and the sustainability goals that professionals and students in the MedTech industry aim to acquire.
The action is carried out as part of the project “Systemic Design and Sustainable Healthcare for MedTech Manufacturing (SysteMA)”, in which, apart from the Life Science Cluster, there participate the University of Technology in Turin (ITALY) – Project Leader and partners: Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero SpA (ITALY), TEM at Lund University / Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare (SWEDEN), Stryker (IRELAND); GVS Group – (ITALY).
