– “Bivalent immunoliposomes for the therapy of triple-negative breast cancer” – Małgorzata Milczarek, National Institute of Medicines,
– “Pharmaceutical grade purity biopolymer obtained in the E. coli bacterial system” – Jolanta Janiszewska, Łukasiewicz –  Mościcki Institute of Industrial Chemistry,
– “Injury-reducing coating of medical devices actively secreting isoprenaline” – Jakub Trzciński, Warsaw University of Technology,
– “Technology for the production of various formulations of chitosan used for health care” – Maria Wisniewska-Wrona, Łukasiewicz – Łódź Institute of Technology,
– “Multifunctional composite implant materials for bone defect filling and bone tissue regeneration” – Monika Biernat, Łukasiewicz – Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials,
– “EPGuard – a teleinformatic system for interactive health monitoring of people with respiratory diseases” – Aleksander Sobotnicki, Łukasiewicz – Kraków Institute of Technology,
– “Portable tuberculosis detector” – Maciej Trzaskowski, Warsaw University of Technology.

Workshop participants actively participated in the discussion, compared and analysed achievements in the context of their own experiences and the literature, and declared their willingness to cooperate in the development of the presented technologies.

The second part of the workshop was devoted to financing and opportunities for cooperation and partnerships in the medical industry. Workshop participants listened to a presentation by Adam Dawidziuk, Coordinator of the Industry Contact Points, on the possibilities of obtaining funding for research from European Funds, the characteristics of programmes and their objectives, and then listened to a presentation by Monika Ślęzak from the Industry Contact Point ‘Medical Technologies and Health’, who talked about European partnerships, their types and thematic clusters, and issues related to planned calls. During this part, the participants also listened to a speech by Zuzanna Kot from INVESTIN sp. z o.o., who talked about the ‘Start from Mazovia’ competition.
