The Municipality of Lublin City, as the coordinator of the Lublin Medicine – Medical & Wellness Cluster, implements the project “ProVaHealth – Product Validation in Health”. The project has supported from the Interreg Region of the Baltic Sea Program 2014-2020 co-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund.

ProVaHealth facilitates access to health infrastructures for startups and SMEs aiming for commercialization with excellent client validation opportunities, hands-on feedback and input for product development.
