The World Medical Device Summit (WMDS)



The WMDS in a nutshell

The WMDS is an exclusive non-for-profit platform where leading experts meet to align and contribute to more effective and efficient regulatory and healthcare systems.


These experts represent organizations from the medical device and healthcare ecosystem:

  • Government e.g., EU-Commission, Bundesgesundheitsministerium, Wirtschaftsministerium Baden-Württemberg, ZLG
  • Authorities e.g., FDA, Regierungen und Regierungspräsidien
  • Medical Device Manufacturers ROCHE, SIEMENS Healthineers, Sirona, Erbe
  • Notified Bodies e.g., TÜV SÜD
  • Science e.g., Harvard University, University of Copenhagen
  • Society and healthcare institutions e.g., Helios Kliniken


  • The World Medical Device Summit (WMDS) aims to align the different stakeholders, to elicit new ideas for better regulatory and healthcare systems, and to answer questions such as:
  • What are the objectives that regulatory and healthcare systems must optimize? 
  • What are the levers to deliver the desired outcomes?
  • Which products and innovations are needed to support healthcare? 
  • How can we accelerate the process from invention to application in routine care? 
  • How to accelerate the digital transformation of regulatory systems?


The World Medical Device Summit is a continuous and iterative process of

  • identifying problems
  • asking the relevant questions
  • providing input for the scientists
  • evaluating research results
  • translating these results into real world applications such as new devices, new blueprints for healthcare delivery, proposing improved regulations etc.
