call for pitches parallel sessions

To have impact on healthcare and wellbeing, all relevant stakeholders need to join forces from an early stage of innovation on. Multidisciplinary collaboration is one of the key values of the University of Twente and is also reflected in the program of our TechMed Event.

In the afternoon parallel sessions we present the work of three of the University of Twente’s multidisciplinary strategic programmes, but moreover we provide the opportunity for visitors to pitch their visions, solutions, problems, questions or ideas for collaboration related to the specific topic and discuss with the audience. We hope we will together 'Meet the Medics', Boost your Business' or hear the 'Patient's Perspectives', resulting in new insights or ideas to further improve healthcare.
