Companies working within medical technologies that are located within the Atlantic Area are encouraged to engage with the project team by registering their details with their country representative.

During registration, we request information about your organisation including the organisation name, area of business, number of employees, website and business address. Our aim in collecting this information is to better understand what you and your organisation will find most useful from Atlantic-KET-Med and the resources of our Partners.  It is also a means to build a network of engaged medtech businesses across the Atlantic Area who can choose to benefit from collaborative opportunities.

We may also gather details from publicly available sources e.g. company websites to strengthen and grow the Atlantic-KET-Med network of relevant businesses and the key individuals involved.

Anyone can make a request to see their personal data held by Atlantic-KET-Med on the project website the CRM or the e-marketing system and a report will be provided. In addition, anyone can request that their personal data is erased, however, such erasure may mean that the individual can no longer access Atlantic-KET-Med services. All members of staff allocated to the Atlantic-KET-Med Project across the seven Partners process personal data in the usual course of delivering Project activities.
