Tissue Cure Alliance Finland boosts collaboration and helps utilize commercial opportunities in tissue care

Tissue Cure Alliance Finland (TCAF) is a non-profit alliance aiming at utilising the high growth opportunities in the field of tissue cure. The alliance brings together the vast know-how of its members to boost commercial opportunities and collaboration and supports sharing best practices and latest development in the field. Moreover, TCAF arranges scientific seminars and promotional events to increase the public awareness and industry know-how.

Opportunities for a high-tech success story

New innovations in tissue cure can help patients in ways never seen before and significantly improve the quality of people’s lives. This becomes increasingly important considering the global megatrends such as ageing population. On the economical side, advances in tissue cure can act as growth drivers for companies in the forefront of development and create significant new business opportunities for them.

TCAF offers its members a platform for collaboration and information sharing and is also looking to visibly promote new Finnish high-tech success stories in tissue cure.

“I believe TCAF can act as a kick-off for a whole new ecosystem of opportunities and support us in showcasing true leadership in an exciting field. To further strengthen our impact, we warmly welcome new members to join the Alliance to both contribute to and benefit from the cooperation. This is a great opportunity to become a part of a new high-tech success story that builds on the long history of highquality education and science in Finland.”, says Virpi Muhonen, Chairman of the Board.
