What clinical resources do you need for your project?


How much does your service cost?

We are committed to delivering high quality services to our clients. Regarding remuneration, there are several options available, depending on the type of project. Please get in touch with us to determine which kind of cooperation works best for the project at hand.

Is M3i a government body?

No, we are a registered private company.

What is your specialization?

We work with clients across all clinical departments. From neurology to cardiology to orthopaedic surgery and laparoscopy, we are involved in projects in all areas of medical technology.

Do you only work with clients in Germany? Or also abroad?

We are happy to serve clients worldwide.

What is the benefit of working with an Industry-in-Clinic Platform? We have always worked without one.

With M3i as a partner and point of contact, you will have consolidated access to medical professionals at the University of Munich and beyond, making your product innovation process more efficient, less time-consuming and more likely to result in a product that features maximal performance and marketability.

What is the difference between an Industry-in-Clinic Platform and a clinical research organisation (CRO)?

Clinical Research Organizations (CROs) specialize in performing clinical research on a contractual basis. In contrast, M3i is your partner during the whole innovation process. We serve  as your R&D partner, providing consulting services for every stage of the innovation process, from ideation to market entry. Bringing a clinical research organization on board can be part of this process when extensive testing is needed. While a CRO might deliver good results in this respect, it is typically not concerned with the market surroundings of your project: the viability of the idea, the role of your innovation in the market, the product usability or taking upcoming changes and trends in your main market segments into consideration. These are hallmark features of an Industry-in-Clinic Platform.

Do you only work with Universities in Munich?

While the University Hospital of Munich is an important partner, it is by no means the only clinical resource we will make available for you. Our network includes clinics and doctors across Germany and beyond. New collaborations are constantly increasing our pool of experts.

What kind of companies do you work with?

Our clients are medical technology developers and distributors of any size, from SMEs to corporations.
