About medways e.V.

Challenging times

“Ophthalmology technology for the 21st century” – this is how medways e.V. started more than 20 years ago. Today, medways is one of the established associations in the industry with an enormous wealth of experience, a comprehensive and stable network as well as a strong determination and the necessary drive as times have become increasingly complex.

But let’s start from the beginning:
Who would have thought in 1999 that we – at that time known as “OphthalmoInnovation” - would emerge as winners from the federal competition for the promotion of “Competence Centres for medical technology”? And furthermore, who would have thought that our former project group would establish an indispensable hub for the technology and biotechnology industry, which now has 90 members and operates internationally? In these 20 years, we have seen a lot: developments in the MT and BT industries are rapid, disciplines are increasingly merging, digitalization and growing regulatory requirements are occupying large parts of the industry.

As a result of these developments, medways has grown steadily. Every day we attend the industry, we eva- luate, initiate, discuss, control and talk: for our members, and especially for the industry. Because we have ambition. Ambition to provide the industry with the comprehensive services it needs.
