CX Educational Grants
New MedTech Europe rules will, from January 2018, prohibit member companies from directly sponsoring physicians to attend third-party organised educational events like the CX Symposium.
What does this mean for you?
Given that companies will no longer be able to pay registration, travel or accommodation expenses to individual HCPs to attend CX, restricted educational grants may be provided to conference sponsors to help off-set costs for participants.
BIBA Medical is the official Conference Sponsor for the Symposium and is an Ethical MedTech Trusted Partner, the certification initiative launched by Ethical MedTech (MedTech Europe’s compliance portal), emphasising our commitment to comply with the industry’s ethical standards.
CX 2018 has been assessed by Ethical MedTech’s Conference Vetting System (CVS) and the Symposium has been rendered compliant. Visit the website HERE for more information.
Our Industry Partners can issue us with an educational grant and we, the Conference Sponsor, will select recipients based on criteria set by the Industry Partner. Companies will be able to define the type of recipients eligible for the grant but not name individual recipients.
Grants will cover the cost of registration, accommodation during the conference, and travel expenses.
Educational grants must be publicly disclosed, ensuring increased transparency of funds allocated to medical education.

I’m a CX Industry Partner and would like to offer an Educational Grant for physicians to attend CX – what next?
Based on a pilot scheme for our 2017 CX we have put together a competitive package for Industry Partners, allowing them to offer grants for a chosen number of physicians from selected MedTech Europe countries. Please email us for more details: email@example.com
Note that in order to process grant contracts, criteria, selection and registration of individuals, we will be unable to accept any further grant submissions after the 28th February.
