Service description

The TRL Booster MedTech (TRL-B ME) is a six-month acceleration service tailored for EIC Transition and Accelerator beneficiaries active in the medical device sector. The medical device design and development process is intricate, requiring careful planning and collaboration with stakeholders. With TRL-B ME, we focus on 10 essential phases of the medical device product lifecycle to facilitate a swift and efficient path to market. During the service, EIC beneficiaries will have access to field experts who will help identify and address development product issues. We delve deep into agenda topics to understand the challenges and critical aspects of the MD process. Additionally, we arrange meetings with Belgian and European Notified Bodies, to ensure preparation for efficient interactions with authorities. Moreover, TRL-B ME offers targeted insights into the barriers to international certification, focusing on the specific MedTech ecosystems of different countries. These insights enable unique networking activities, allowing for direct connections with the ecosystems within individual countries. It's important to note that WSL’s international partners involved in these activities may vary from year to year. TRL-B ME is designed for teams seeking to accelerate MD product development, production units anticipating challenges, and established companies engaged in MD development. With a focus on achieving CE marking with confidence, participants can progress from Commercial Maturity Level 4 (CRL4) to CRL6 more effectively. ISO certification and CE marking not only facilitate product commercialization but also enhance the company's value and safety practices. The service duration is a minimum of 6 months, and it is conducted in a presential format. TRL-B ME offers a unique opportunity to optimize your medical device development process and position your product for success in the market. For additional details, please visit:
