The Municipality of Lublin City, as the coordinator of the Lublin Medicine – Medical & Wellness Cluster, has implemented 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 has facilitated access to health infrastructures for startups and SMEs aiming for commercialization with excellent client validation opportunities, hands-on feedback and input for product development.
