    After the kick-off on August 27, 16 pre-sessions took place during the virtual 2020 TechMed Event. The themes were AI and Intelligent Imaging, Personalized eHealth, Health Robotics, Nano Bio Tech and Innovation Meets Industry. Thanks to more than 60 speakers from The Netherlands and abroad, we succeeded in developing a top program.

    The TechMed Event conference took place on October 28. After the opening by Life Science & Health ambassador Clémence Ross-van Dorp, there was an interesting panel discussion with Michiel Jannink (DEMCON / Scinus Cell Expansion BV), Tom Oostrom (Kidney Foundation), Tim Jongman (Noabers) and host Nico Verdonschot (UT TechMed Centre) about the impact of MedTech on our well-being. Afterwards, the participants were informed about the latest trends in the 4 themed areas.

    The program was concluded with a reflection on the future of healthcare. Where the American top-notch keynote speaker Daniel Kraft talked about the role of technology in the future of health and medicine. Full of new inspiration, we continue our joint efforts to improve healthcare through personalized technologies.

    The TechMed Event concluded on October 29 with an online B2B matchmaking program involving companies from around the world, including Japan, Finland, Poland, France, the Netherlands, South Africa, Brazil and Canada. In the 1 on 1 conversations, companies could look for new sales channels and cooperation partners. In between there were 2 rounds of pitches where companies could introduce themselves. A total of 20 international companies participated.

Improving healthcare by innovative technolgy

Technology is a tool to enable high-quality 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.

The TechMed Event is a joint effort by the TechMed Centre of the University of Twente and World Trade Center Twente in Hengelo. Read our full story
