The Brazilian ministry for science and technology is planning to improve links between research organisations and the medtech industry. It has invited health tech manufacturers to apply to join a cofinanced R&D programme, which aims to foster technology transfer links between the national R&D institute (ICT) and medtech firms. It will do this in three specific areas: medical (diagnostic/therapeutic) devices and biomaterials; telemedicine/e-health; and pharmaceuticals.
