SurgicEye GmbH becomes partner of the consortium GMIM – German Medical Imaging in Motion
SurgicEye GmbH, the Munich based pioneer in intraoperative radioguided surgery was selected to become a new member in the German Medical Imaging in Motion (GMIM) excellent network initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). “Core of our common efforts is to strengthen the label “Research in Germany” in the domain of cutting-edge medical technology products”, says Eric Soehngen, Chief Medical Officer of SurgicEye.

SurgicEye provides high-level expertise to the network as a successful medical device company with a distribution network in 20 countries and product installations in EMEA, Asia and USA. As a former spin-off company from the Technische Universität München (TUM), the company translated a promising scientific concept to the medical market and is still closely related to leading international clinics and research institutes.

The network “GMIM – German Medical Imaging in Motion” is intended to promote and open frequent exchange between other medical imaging entrepreneurs in the wider Munich area. Furthermore, by collaborative participation in a series of international recognized congresses and medical device tradeshows troughout the world, the alliance aims to enhance the common visibility and utilize the synergistic activities between the partners of the consortium with the overall goal to reach sustainable improvements of medical treatments.

About the consortium GMIM – German Medical Imaging in Motion
Against the background of a worldwide increasing demand for medical engineering products, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has launched an initiative to promote Germany as an excellent research location. Based on the theme „Research in Germany – Land of Ideas“, the campaign will highlight the attractiveness of Germany and its research environment to important target countries and present German research organisations, including universities, institutes, and private companies that are active in the field of research.

Therefore a consortium of partners from university and industry located in the Munich area got together to pursue extensive international marketing measures focusing on the concept German Medical Imaging In Motion. Within the context of this campaign the members of the consortium (TUM Graduate School of Information Science in Health, Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) / Helmholtz Zentrum München, IMETUM – TUM Institute for Medical Engineering, iThera Medical GmbH, microDimensions GmbH, RAPID Biomedical GmbH, SurgicEye GmbH) focus on the propagation of new imaging techniques into healtcare. Together with its numerous cooperation partners from university, research institutes and industry, the consortium specializes on innovative biomedical technology topics – both in the fields of preclinical, research-oriented imaging, like, for example, multimodal imaging, and clinical imaging and image processing. To this end, the consortium organizes sector-specific events abroad with the aim of establishing international research, teaching and development cooperations. Core of the campaign is the Mobile Interactive Cube: a mobile booth uniting and presenting the innovative topics of the members of the consortium, which is set up at the IMETUM - TUM Institute for Medical Engineering (Boltzmannstr. 11, 85748 Garching) these days.
