Thanks to PRO+MED pragmatic and sustainable actions,  the cluster has been successful in establishing a tight connection with its german neighbours (Bio Régio STERN) and swiss neighbours (Medical Cluster Suisse) . The 3 clusters are very complementary in production and R&D activities for prostheses, ancillary tools and surgical instruments.

          In january 2010, NOGENTECH decided to file an application to the Oséo INNET Innovation Networks Call for projects in order to financially support this transboarder co-operation. Euro  Pro+MeD and 7 member SME’s have been selected at the European level, namely  : Oury-Guyé & Fils, Marle SA, Lasserteux, Microtig, Haute Marne Parachèvement, Mikroland, Gillet Outillage. This European protocol, ease up the financing of exchanges between NOGENTECH Euro Pro+MeD and the swiss and german clusters. Their objective is to link potential partners of the 3 clusters, to stimulate the inception and preparation of technological co-operations between innovating SME’s.

          NOGENTECH domains of participation in these projects :

          • Help non medical companies to engage a diversification towards Medical Devices specialties, adapt their know-how and get linked to our specialized european medical partners . (surgical instruments, ancillary tools, endoscopy, mini-invasive surgery, ..)
          • Extend the network to potential partners having similar actions and expectations, in order to ease up the starting of new R&D programmes.
          • Communicate abroad, about our brands and know-how through exhibitions and seminars, and via Euro Pro+MeD communication media.
          • Communicate on our local know-how in term of Medical Devices and set-up bi or tri-lateral commercial agreements (subcontracting,…) between Haute-Marne and european players.
          • Create educational programmes to benefit local employment (polishers, …) and image of the industrial area ( Operating room nurses,…)
          • Create added value to local subcontracting through R&D.
          • Networking at european level to enhance existing competence of the cluster.
