The MedTech Strategist Innovation Summit DUBLIN 2018 – Apr. 17-19 — Agenda

April 17th - 19th, 2018 The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin — Dublin, Ireland


We are pleased to announce that Dr. Adam M. Hill, Chief Medical Officer, McLaren Applied Technologies, will be a special guest speaker on our Dublin 2018 program.

McLaren Applied Technologies was formed in 2004 to identify and manage projects that leverage technology and expertise within the McLaren Group and apply them beyond the core business of motor sport and automotive. MAT licenses intellectual property within the Group and derives commercial opportunities from them.

McLaren’s formidable research and development capacity is attractive to other technology companies and MAT has attracted interest in its properties from diverse industries. For example, a major healthcare company used MAT to develop a system for collecting real time data from patients. The result was quicker, more accurate diagnosis.
