SWIRL - Working Around the World
The SAFE-infusion partners have been traveling recently, attending important trade-shows and events to promote this project and shape the positive future of the medical technology in development.
The leadership teams from Gasgon Medical and Tada Medical jointly attended MEDICA, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, a leading global trade fair for medical technology and one of the most important events each year in the medical technology calendar. At the event, which is a gathering point of the world's leading corporations and SMEs, the SAFE-Infusion partners held formative discussions with suppliers and partners.

For the consortium partners, the opportunity to connect and effectively break down cultural or country-specific borders, acting as true European partners, has opened up new possibilities and enables a project that can succeed for EU citizens everywhere. Even in the times of the pandemic the committed partners worked through the limitations, meeting regularly via video meetings to advance the project.

The SAFE-Infusion team jointly attend EIT Health's flagship event, the annual Summit, which was held in Stockholm this year. At the event, leading stakeholders in healthcare from across Europe shared ideas and networks. The team engaged with investors and hospital partners from across Europe and promoted the benefits of the SWIRL partnership, which has been actively supported by EIT Health.
The Tada Medical founders, Rebecca and Katarina, presented ReLink live on stage at Arab Health 2022.
The Tada team were guests of the EU pavilion at Arab Health, meeting with many interested stakeholders from global health technology companies.
In January 2022, the teams were off to Arab Health, a major international trade fair that takes place in Dubai annually. At this event, Tada Medical were given the opportunity to pitch their technology live on stage as well as at their booth, receiving much interest from the health community.
And the global ambitions of the partners took both Tada and Gasgon representatives to California in April 2022 to attend the Oncology Nursing Society forum, an annual event that attracts nurses from all across the USA. Foundational meetings were held with nursing representatives of leading hospitals from all over America, which will benefit the introduction of SAFE-Infusion devices in that market.
And in May it was Tada Medical who made the trip to Ireland, where Katarina presented ReLink live on stage at the EBAN Congress event for the European Business Angel Network. This event offered a melting pot of EU funding and decision makers, eager to find the next great companies to invest into.
This activity promoting SAFE-Infusion technology is part of the wider dissemination plan of the partners to establish a solid foundation for commercial launch of the technology once CE and FDA approval is attained, a main goal of the project.
