2021 - 2027 MOCIA Project The MOCIA research programme aims at being able to signal an increased risk of cognitive decline and to improve prevention by developing a personalised lifestyle intervention. As part of a global initiative, we will be testing a multi-domain lifestyle intervention in Dutch older adults. We will additionally focus on individual differences, predictive factors, biological mechanisms, behavioural change, and e-Health technology. The MOCIA consortium consists of various academic institutions and societal and industrial partners.
2020 - 2027 INTENSE Project - Innovative Neurotechnology for society The rapid emerging scientific field of neurotechnology may radically change medical practice. This field connects important advances in our understanding of brain function to a recent surge in the technological possibilities to write to and read from the brain. INTENSE brings together academic researchers, medical doctors and companies and patient organizations with the aim to expand the possibilities of linking digital technology to the nervous system to profoundly improve the lives of patients with blindness, deafness, paralysis and epilepsy.
2018 - 2022 PROMPT – Personalised-care and Research On Motoric-dysfunctioning for Patient-specific Treatments The main objective of the SoftPro project is to fulfil Henry Ford’s vision to assist people with upper limb amputations or motor disabilities providing them with robotics-enabled aids. To do so, we need not only to produce new technology and better performing devices; we also need to make the technology accessible to and affordable for real people with real needs.
