Cam implants
CAM Implants sceinces

  • We are specialized and we are small

    • Nobody has heard of CAM

      • Pioneers in biomaterial development

      • We develop and produce calcium phosphates

    • Nobody will ever hear of CAM

      • We are in the none sexy field of orthopedics

      • We do not market the products ourselves

    • But we know more of calcium phosphates than anyone else


Specialized
Specialized sceinces

  • Builds great customers relations

    • Outsourcing  Pipeline

  • Gives a scientific aura

    • Graduates do know you

    • Access to knowledge centers

  • Being on top of developments

    • Third party patents are a source of inspiration


Specialized1

So how do small companies cope with long-development times and high risk of new product development for the life sciences? What role is played by intellectual property? How can they maintain an adequate patent pipeline and how what do they do once the patents run out? How do small life-science companies attract and retain high quality employees? Are they a good career alternative for the best graduates? How will the role of major life-science company's change and what will the industry look like in 20 years time?
