Katarzyna Markiewicz started her studies at University of Life Sciences in Poznan in Poland. In 2008 she completed her Bachelor Degree in International Livestock Production at Christelijke Agrarische Hogeschool in Dronten in the Netherlands. In 2010 she received her Master of Science Degree in Animal Breeding and Genetics (Major) and Business Economics (Minor) at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Since May 2011 Katarzyna started her PhD at the department of Health Technology and Services Research of the University of Twente.


In May 2011 Katarzyna started to work as a PhD student at the department of HTSR (Health Technology and Services Research), on the project titled ‘Development of the Twente Medtech Innovation Index’. The aim of the project is to develop an index, based on decision analytic modeling, to estimate the potential of new medical technologies, while in the same time to incorporate user preferences, clinical effectiveness, disruptive or incremental innovation and reimbursement of the technology in the index. The innovation index will be tested on novel technologies aimed at early diagnosis or screening of disease. The practical relevance of the study is in predicting the technology potential early in development, in a stage in which it can be adapted to fit the environment or the environment can be prepared for the technology or, if potential is very low, further development can be dismissed.
