Medical technology is one of the so-called motors of innovation. Thus, the next 22@Update Breakfast, organized by 22@Barcelona on 18 March, will analyze the innovative applications and business opportunities this sector offers.

The general manager of the Banc de Sang i Teixits, Dr. Ramon Pau Pla Illa, will introduce this organization –one of the most unique and dynamic in the Catalan healthcare system– and speak about the alliances they are forging with universities, research institutes, science societies and ICT companies to develop innovative projects. Afterwards, a representative from Aifos Solutions will explain an innovative solution that makes managing a blood bank more efficient, based on RFID technology, which is already being used in the healthcare sector.
