UMINHO staff attended the European Wound Management Association conference in 2016 in Bremen, Germany, that holds one of the biggest exhibition spaces in the field, with more than 180 exhibitors attending which was particularly useful to establish contacts with European SMEs that can be partners in collaborative projects.
The 26th Conference of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) is held as a joint conference together with the Deutcher Wundkongress and WundDACH and Dr. Alexandra Marques from UMINHO had the chance of participating in this remarkable conference. This year the number of participants registered for the joint conference not only exceeded all previous EWMA Conferences but it also attracted a record high number of exhibitors which together displayed the newest developments within products and services related to wound management. Building on the success of previous EWMA conferences, the international programme offered an exciting mix of scientific key sessions, workshops, guest sessions, lectures, full-day streams, and satellite symposia, meeting the scientific interests of Gene2Skin project.
