About the EVENT

The ClusterXchange program on 21-22 March 2023, Leuven, Belgium

MEDVIA is pleased to announce that a 2-day ClusterXchange program has been established, on 21-22 of March, the two days leading up to HealthTech Summit, when they will be hosting the free event, which includes a special program aimed at all our international visitors.

What’s a ClusterXchange?



A ClusterXchange is part of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform’s program to better connect Europe’s industrial ecosystems. Clusters working in similar sectors around Europe come together to exchange views, learn from each other and come into contact with pan-European venture capitalists, potential customers and development funding or services.

MEDVIA, as one of the founding members of Medic Nest – group of four European health-tech clusters, will host the ClusterXchange program. Medic Nest’s first ClusterXchange took place earlier this year, between 7-9 February, in Iași, Romania – Smart Health Technologies Forum in medical diagnostic and treatment.


What’s on the CXC program in Leuven?

Day 1 in Leuven includes visits to the expertise center Health House, the world-class university hospital UZ Leuven and presentations by Medic Nest members.

Day 2 includes a pitch session, a presentation on smart healthcare and a workshop on bridging the gap between research and commercialization.
