CX Educational Grants

Since January 2018, MedTech Europe regulations have prohibited member companies from directly sponsoring physicians to attend third-party organised educational events like the CX Symposium.

Restricted educational grants may be provided to conference sponsors to help off-set registration, travel and hotel costs for participants wishing to attend CX.

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 2019 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.
