Global healthcare organisation product development programme


German medical and pharmaceutical device company, B.Braun, has launched a new competition called ‘The Future of Sutures’, which will support innovators with wound care/closure solutions.

Any person or persons with a great idea can apply, no matter the level of maturity. The main areas of interest for B.Braun are:

  • new materials
  • new technologies
  • smart devices
  • digital solutions
  • packaging
  • customisation.

B.Braun are offering innovators with the best ideas the chance to participate in a value creation programme in Germany. The goal of this programme is to transform the idea into a concrete business proposal by providing expert advice, developing business opportunities and networking activities.

At the end of the programme each participant will present the business proposal created around the idea. Afterwards, if both parties are interested in moving forwards together, further cooperation will be explored. This isn’t mandatory and B.Braun will not be pursuing intellectual property rights through the programme.
