    As the filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard said, "It's not where you take things from—it's where you take them to." In this session, we'll look at exciting developments in industries such as alternative energy, aerospace, and automotive, and consider their crossover potential in medtech. Topics covered will include:
    • How to identify an idea with crossover potential
    • How to adapt technologies from other industries for use in medtech
    • Examining why successful crossover technologies from the past have worked
    • Considerations for applying technology to traditionally lower volume production runs
