The Medical Device Coordination Group (MDCG) serves a central role in ensuring a unified implementation of medical devices Regulations by offering guidance and support as part of its core mission. The MDCG (established in 2017) is comprised of representatives from national competent authorities and technical subgroups. They regularly convene in a hybrid meeting format in Brussels to address various aspects of medical device regulations. The specific task at hand is to support up to 10 hybrid MDCG meetings and 52 hybrid MDCG sub-group meetings in Brussels. This entails organizing the meetings, catering, communication tasks, and moderating a scientific webinar to assist in achieving the MDCG's mission of ensuring a harmonized implementation of medical device regulations.
The project's approach comprises several tasks to ensure the success of the project. This includes the organisation of expert group and stakeholder meetings or webinars in Brussels or Luxembourg, handling logistics, catering, and arranging a social dinner for the invitees. Additionally, communication and dissemination services will be provided, involving the creation of flash reports for expert meetings, the preparation of meeting minutes, and the development of press information packages. Furthermore, the coordination and provision of scientific support to the expert group will include the organization and moderation of scientific webinars.
The Envisioned Result
By fostering enhanced collaboration among experts and stakeholders, facilitating knowledge dissemination, and ensuring seamless operational support, we will organize expert group or stakeholder face-to-face meetings and scientific webinars.
Our role in the project consists of taking minutes during 20 meetings of the Medical Device Coordination Group.
We are collaborating with Intellera, CECOFORMA, and Empirica on this project.
