A defined goal

 

Open Innovation, the core of the BCI strategy

Physicians, managers, scientists: these are the founders of BCI. To collaborate with Universities, Research Centers, Hospitals, Startups, and Consultants is in the DNA of the Company. To link the dots among different competencies is the key driver for the development of new technologies and business opportunities, reducing the risks and costs associated with innovation.
Thanks to the vision of Ugo Stefanelli, BCI was established with a specific focus on developing technologies capable of prolonging the durability of prosthetic medical devices. Throughout his long career, Dr. Stefanelli, a pediatrician and general practitioner, has observed the dramatic consequences of the rapid degeneration of bioprostheses on the lives of patients, especially children, who are forced to undergo multiple replacement surgeries from a young age.

Research and Innovation

 

From bench to hospital bedside

BCI carries on a translational research approach, which enables the rapid application of the results in commercial products, already available, or in the prototyping stage.
The work strategy embraces the concept of Open Innovation, given that all research lines at BCI are developed both within the corporate laboratories and in collaboration with specialized and certified worldwide external laboratories and CROs. The clinical and scientific board of BCI constantly oversees the quality of the work carried out, cultivating a network of world-renowned key opinion leaders who are attentive, up-to-date, knowledgeable, and always active in providing updates and support to the innovation developed by BCI.
