INS 13th World Congress Pre-Conference:
Innovations in Neuromodulation - May 28, 2017

The International Neuromodulation Society is pleased to announce "Innovations in Neuromodulation. The Challenge of Reimbursement: Can we do this smarter?" -- its fourth educational event for the neuromodulation innovation and investment community, which will take place on Sunday, 28 May 2017, in Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of the official pre-conference of the INS 13th World Congress. (Note: The date has changed from the 27th of May to the 28th.) This unique event will bring together over 200 leaders in the global neuromodulation and investment communities to share the wealth of their experiences, and their visions for the future of this exciting and rapidly evolving field.  

In this Innovations Day, INS is presenting an opportunity for innovators to share their company stories with venture capitalists, clinicians, engineers and other Industry members. 

Invited speakers will include representatives from National Institute of Health Research, NICE, and BSI group (a notified body). Year on year this has become very popular and demonstrates the complex interactions and roles that inventors, investors, researchers, clinicians, regulators have in developing safe and effective devices to benefit both patients and the health care system.

We have developed the program with an aim of achieving several objectives:

  • Identify and discuss the data that needs to be collected by commercialising companies to ensure it has utility for future reimbursement applications.

  • Learn about the process by which innovations occur, become funded, receive reimbursement and reach the marketplace.

  • Describe the process of establishing and protecting intellectual property.

  • Define the regulatory process by which the CE Mark and FDA approval are obtained in Europe and in the U.S., respectively, and ultimately earn full reimbursement.

  • Learn about what public scientific initiatives are available with which to partner.

  • Find out about current and future investment strategies and challenges in the device market --both in Europe and in the U.S.

  • Discover emerging companies and the science behind their innovative therapies.

  • Network with the leaders in innovation, investment, basic science and clinical practice in the neuromodulation space.
