The U.S. Department of Commerce concluded in a recent study that the global medical devices market offers tremendous opportunity for U.S. manufacturers. The “2016 Top Markets Report” ranked Germany as the No. 1 market based on export history, forecasted market risk and rewards, per capita spending, and market size.

This event will highlight Germany’s healthcare market and some lesser known research landscape in Eastern Germany.
