About the Medtec Innovation Awards


The government considers it important to develop Japan's manufacturing technology into the medical device field, and is working especially to enable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to identify issues in the medical field and develop technologies and products that will solve them.
The medical device manufacturing market is one of the industries that will continue to develop in the future due to the aging of the population and other factors, as well as the growing expectations for new entrants from small and medium-sized companies with such technological capabilities and from other industries. We invite companies that are considering entering the medical device industry as a new business field to exhibit and visit Medtec Japan, and we will also establish the Medtec Innovation Award to promote the medical device industry.
