Last week the RIC3D Team had the privilege of taking part in the famous international trade fair Slush, Europe’s leading startup event held at the Messukeskus of Helsinki between 17 and 18 November.

Thanks to ICE-ITA, which selected RIC3D as an example of Italian excellence to be introduced to the global tech market, our Team was able to participate in the prestigious kermesse, which has been a meeting point for the world’s leading technology professionals for more than a decade.

The incredibly vibrant and inspiring environment of Slush was for the RIC3D Team an opportunity to interact and exchange views with world-class players and to discover some of the most innovative and groundbreaking technologies from all over the world.

In this setting RIC3D had the opportunity to show ROG (Real Organ Generation), its R&D project in the MedTech field. Participants at the fair were offered the opportunity to experience our high-tech software platform characterised by Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence technologies and aimed not only at training and education, but also at diagnosis and surgical simulation. The “testers” thus had the opportunity to immerse themselves in a 360-degree virtual environment, in which they could interact with the organs and instruments in the operating theatre. All they had to do was don a helmet and grab a pair of triggers to start operating in a virtual environment like real surgeons equipped with scalpels and surgical scissors.

Thanks to the extremely high number of participants and the numerous networking opportunities organised within the same exhibition scenario, Slush proved to be a valuable source of comparison and professional growth for the RIC3D team, which is always ready to enhance its expertise and collaborative relationships on a national and, above all, international scale.
