The Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute of Medical Sciences and Technology will be joining hands with the Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC) to set up MedSpark, a medical devices park at the Life Science Park in Thiruvananthapuram.
Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan will lay the foundation stone for the medical devices park on September 24. Major objectives of the medical devices park are to create an enabling support system for research and development, testing and evaluation of medical devices, manufacturing support, technology innovation and knowledge dissemination.
“The institute had conceived establishing a medical devices park under the technical research centre for biomedical devices programme of the Department of Science and Technology. This was made possible by entering into a knowledge partnership with KSIDC, capitalizing our individual strengths and tapping the ecosystem that exists in the city with several research and academic institutions and health care centres,” said Dr Asha Kishore, director of SCTIMST.
