During the thematic session concerning medical problems, the letter of intent was signed. The agreement was set between National e-Zdrowie Cluster, Polish Innovative Cluster PIKMED, Modern Medicine Cluster and our Innovative Medicine Cluster.
This agreement assumes cooperation in the field of medical market and healthcare. It’s the first initiative of it’s kind among Polish medical clusters. Periodic partners meeting will result in, inter alia, creation of platform for cooperation and information.
Clusters cooperation is to spread also beyond Polish borders in search for partners for international projects.
