We are pleased to announce the beginning of a new firm cooperation in the Healthcare field.

As a member of the Life Science Desk, Techinnova will take part in the partnership between Assolombarda and the Sharjah Health Authority, the Emirate of Sharjah’s institution engaged in the management and regulation of the local healthcare system.

Abdelaziz Al Mheiri, Chairman of the Sharjah Health Authority, and Alessandro Spada, President of Assolombarda, signed today the two-year collaboration agreement with the aim of fostering mutual cooperation in the field of healthcare and life sciences, developing partnerships between hospitals and the education system.

On the one hand, in fact, the Sharjah Health Authority will accompany Assolombarda in institutional and business missions conducted within the Emirate, sharing with the Association and all members of the Life Science Desk opportunities for collaboration within the Emirate’s Healthcare sector.

On the other hand, Assolombarda will commit to support the Sharjah Health Authority in identifying potential partners in the area, promoting collaboration opportunities between Sharjah and Italian organizations, and organizing visits to local stakeholders in the healthcare sector and to Lombardy’s healthcare facilities, which, moreover, have already started in these days.

Indeed, during the signing of the agreement, the Emirati counterpart had the opportunity to meet with leading healthcare providers and centers of excellence in the region, exploring potential opportunities with some of the best hospitals and medical research centers.

The challenge of the collaboration does not stop here, however. A double challenge of the strategic partnership between the Sharjah Health Authority and Assolombarda and its network will in fact be to strengthen Italian excellence in the Emirates, where they are not widely known, and at the same time enable the transmission of Italian best practices across the border.

Techinnova’s contribution in this regard will specifically concern the implementation of Virtual Reality within the cardiovascular sector, particularly with the printing of 3D organ mockups and the creation of a 3D design laboratory to perform surgical simulations in a virtual environment, with the aim of helping in preventing surgical errors during the training and formation period.
