WELCOME LETTER

ICI Meeting 2017 – the premier International Conference for Innovations in Cardiovascular Systems (Heart, Brain and Peripheral Vessels) and High-Tech Life Science Industry, will be held in Israel, December 3-5, 2017.

The ICI Meeting is an acclaimed forum which aims to explore fuel, spark and be involved in the innovations that will shape the future of our cardiovascular systems and BEYOND. Over the last 2 decades, Israel has become a medical “start-up nation”. ICI’s dynamic environment which allows rich exchanges on innovations has contributed to this process by facilitating global interaction between physicians, entrepreneurs, academia and industry and by building bridges leading to innovation.

The ICI meeting is preceded by the ICI Academy of Innovation Day – a full-day pre-conference educational workshop satellite, which trains participants in the entire medical innovation process. We then continue to a 2-day conference focusing on advanced technologies to save hearts and lives. We challenge the horizons in coronary interventions, vascular interventions, transcatheter valvular therapies, stroke prevention/intervention, electrophysiology, cell therapy and heart failure. The popular “Technology Parade” offers biomedical technology start-ups from around the world the opportunity to present their latest developments. The unique “Wall-to-Wall – East Meets West” sessions concentrate on China-Israeli cooperation in the field.

We look forward to having you join us for this exciting event!
