Technology is a tool to enable sustainable and personalised healthcare. Not only for diagnosis and treatment but also for improving the quality of life and to stimulate independent living. We strive to have a significant impact on society, both by scientific excellence as well as by linking fundamental research to clinical applications, from the nano to the global scale. Ultimately, we bring our technology to the clinic or to the home environment. For this purpose, it is imperative to have close working relations with clinical and industrial partners.
