CMI-NEN Matchmaking Symposium
Innovative imaging and diagnostics
On April 14, 2023, we cordially invite you to participate in the inspiring second edition of the CMI-NEN Matchmaking Symposium. This day will be entirely devoted to innovative imaging and diagnostics. In addition to the many informative lectures by top speakers from the CMI-NEN consortium, there are various matchmaking opportunities with the interdisciplinary Center for Medical Imaging North East Netherlands (CMI-NEN). The symposium brings together clinical partners, business associates and researchers. By putting cooperation ahead of competition against each other, greater achievements become possible than without this content-driven joining of forces. We believe that collaboration and community building are central to this event to ultimately create an impact on healthcare through technology.
Seed money voucher
The CMI-NEN consortium can jointly apply for grants, such as IMDI grants for which CMI-NEN is recognized as CoRE and beyond. The goal is to improve collaborations in Medical Imaging research between UT, UMCG/RUG and Siemens Healthineers Netherlands. To facilitate this further, CMI-NEN requests the Executive Boards of UT, UMCG/UG and Siemens for some available financial support for booster projects. These 1 or 2-year projects will be focused on setting up or strengthening collaboration between UT, UMCG/RUG and Siemens and getting first results and knowledge. Projects should build on the complementary knowledge of researchers from both universities and industry in order to achieve synergy effects by technical-clinical-industrial collaboration. The outcomes of the booster projects are expected to form the backbone of larger collaborative proposals targeting extramural funding.
In total 4 projects of 15k Euro will be granted; 1 per research domain. Final decision is to be based on evaluation results and expected proposals budget. The coming CMI-NEN symposium will be on 14th April 2023 and will be an excellent moment to introduce the boosters.
