MedTechConnect and the Government of Telangana have launched Project Tej, a platform to help entrepreneurs test their innovative ideas in the field of medical technologies.

MedTechConnect was set up by engineering services company Cyient and Xynteo’s India2022 Coalition.

The new platform was launched on the sidelines of BioAsia 2020, a biotechnology and life-sciences forum, held here.

Telangana State’s Research and Innovation Circle of Hyderabad (RICH) and MedTechConnect have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to help accelerate and support indigenous innovations in medical technologies.

“Through Project Tej, medical technology innovators and device manufacturers can validate the usability of their devices in public health settings and gain access to public health channels,” Ajit Rangnekar, Director General, RICH, has said.

“Implementation of Project Tej will help provide real-world access for companies to test and commercialise their technologies,” BVR Mohan Reddy, Executive Chairman of Cyient, has said.
