- RESEARCH AND EDUCATION: to initiate, create interest and contribute to research and education within engineering in medicine and health.
- SPINN-OFF: to contribute to processes that facilitate the creation of new products, services and businesses.
CTMH is an opportunity for KI and KTH researchers with applications in healthcare and medical technology, an offer to businesses with interest in these researchers, and an offer to the healthcare representatives with an interest in health care contributions and exchange with research and industry in medical technology.
