# 1 Sensor technology for medicine and implants of tomorrow

On June 21, 2023, the kick-off event of the Digital Implant Innovation Forum under the auspices of the Digital Health City Hannover took place at NIFE.

The forum, which is dedicated to promoting the exchange of experts and innovations in the field of intelligent implants and digitalization in medicine, attracted around 100 experts to the NIFE despite the summer temperatures.

The event started with inspiring greetings from Prof. Windhagen, Executive Board NIFE, who warmly welcomed the participants and particularly emphasized the importance of sensor technology for the further development of implants and medical applications. This was followed by Prof. Bengel as Dean of Research at MHH, who emphasized the importance of the NIFE research center as a focal point of the Medical School. Mrs. Petersen from hannoverimpuls rounded off the greetings by showing how hannoverimpuls makes targeted economic development possible through clever promotion and support.

This was followed by a series of lectures and a discussion in which the experts presented their latest findings and experiences in the field of intelligent implants. They also discussed the often rocky road from the idea to practical application and the associated challenges. The speakers emphasized that innovation in this field not only requires technological know-how, but also has to take into account regulatory aspects, ethics and data protection.

Also discussed were the benefits of digital health applications, such as remote monitoring of implants, personalized medicine and improved patient care. At the same time, however, the associated challenges such as data security and privacy were also highlighted.

In summary, the launch event was a great success. It provided a platform for the exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences. The interdisciplinary character of the forum enabled a holistic view of this exciting topic and promoted the dialog between experts from different disciplines.

We are already looking forward to the follow-up event, which will also take place at NIFE on 11.09.2023. You will find more information about it on our site soon.
