“Europe has a strong network of hundreds of companies with ambitious innovations in the field of
health. To develop their products and services, access the market and make them available to patients,
these companies need massive financial support. As the only European event to bring together all the
players in the healthtech ecosystem, the HTID® once again confirms its mission to serve the growth of
these companies and will continue to strengthen its commitment in the years to come,” says
Maryvonne Hiance, chairwomen of HealthTech For Care, organizer of the HTID®.
“The 4.1% increase in healthcare spending in 2022 is structurally higher than global GDP growth and
highlights the long-term trends that are still intact and are the fundamental drivers of healthcare
markets: the increase in the world’s population, its ageing, the constant progress of medical
treatments combined with the expansion of public healthcare systems. The European Commission
wants to have Europe as a preferred location for life sciences. Among the many initiatives taken is the
Important Project of Common European Interest (‘IPCEI’) in the area of health, a key strategic
instrument that brings together expertise, financial resources, and economic actors to overcome
market failures and societal challenges. Also worth mentioning is the European Commission’s ongoing
work on intellectual property rights with the imminent launch of the Unitary Patent system to support
EU competitiveness. Europe’s success in health innovation is a long-term objective, serving the EU’s
economic success and strategic autonomy. “, says Hubert Gambs, Deputy Director General DG GROW
– Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs – at the European Commission.
