Abstract

The European Medical Technology Industry has not been targeted with sustainability demand to the same extent as manufacturing industries in other sectors. This is for several reasons: the industry has been heavily regulated under many MedTech standards, the focus has exclusively been on patient safety, and sustainability demand from healthcare providers has been weak. This has been changing in recent years and the current pandemic has further sharpened the concerns of EU health systems for their environmental impacts. The demand for green procurement, sustainable products/services, and higher environmental standards, is set to increase dramatically. However, companies, especially SMEs, have few tools to fill the knowledge gaps on sustainable healthcare issues. The training programme aims to address this need by offering learning paths tailored according to the starting level and the sustainability goals that professionals and students in the MedTech industry aim to acquire.
