The project seeks to establish a demonstration and simulation center through the network between a consortium of Colombian partners like Fundación Cardiovascular, and the German company Realists Training Technologies GmbH. Based on the above, a series of training workshops in the field of surgical simulation training will be implemented by Realists Training Technologies GmbH in Colombia.

A further aim of the project is to explore the possibilities of further cooperation between companies and research institutions in the field of medical technology and research in Saxony and Bucaramanga. Several potential fields of interest have been identified, including patient-specific 3D-printed medical implants, infectious diseases, e-health, clinical essays, and hospital/expert knowledge transfer. For this purpose, several meetings between key stakeholders will be organized in Germany and Colombia.

In addition, Colombian and German organizations will receive training in the field of international cooperation project development, with the purpose of strengthening their competences inside the multicultural milieu.
