· The biotech firm KSK Diagnostics GmbH, supported by the Hamburg Innovationstarter Fund’s “InnoRampUp” program, is aiming to develop a DNA analysis based on an especially fast point-of-care test.

· Sonormed GmbH also receives funding from the “InnoRampUp” program. Its Tinnitracks product offers a tinnitus therapy endorsed by the latest neuroscientific findings and based on specially filtered music. Sonormed was a winner in the SXSW (South by Southwest) technology conference’s startup competition in the U.S. in the digital health and life science category.

· The field of research was represented by the Fraunhofer MEVIS Project Group from Lübeck, which uses image registration to combine and compare information from various patient images.

“As direct neighbors of the Netherlands, we are delighted to welcome the Dutch delegation and see this as an opportunity to showcase our strengths in life sciences, learn from each other and set the course for closer collaboration in the future,” said Dr. Hinrich Habeck, Managing Director of Life Science Nord Management GmbH. At the following trade dinner, company representatives had the opportunity to exchange views and make new contacts.
