TU Delft launched the Tech for Health | Better healthcare thanks to Delft technology campaign. The university is shining a spotlight on its research innovations that contribute to the improvement of healthcare. This research often involves collaboration with medical institutes such as Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. TU Delft alumni are invited to meet the scientists behind this exciting research and are asked to contribute to their important work.
Tim van der Hagen, Rector Magnificus TU Delft: ‘Our researchers and students are leading the field in countless technological innovations. This includes innovations in health and healthcare. Healthcare in the Netherlands is of an extremely high quality, but it is under pressure due to increasing demand and rising costs. The coronavirus crisis has shown us just how fragile our healthcare system can be. It needs to become more efficient and more effective, and this is where Delft technology is set to make a real impact. We are working closely with medical centres and seeing unimaginable innovations become reality due to research at the intersection of both technology and medicine.’
Erns Kuipers, CEO Erasmus MC: ‘The road towards a healthy future demands that we bring technology, medicine, and social sciences together. This allows to tackle major issues such as increasing healthcare demand and complexity, shortage of healthcare staff, rising costs, and major disruptors such as the covid pandemic. Erasmus MC is proud to closely collaborate on these issues with Delft University of Technology which launched the beautiful Tech for Health campaign. This highlights the wide range of excellent healthcare research being done at TU Delft. We hope that many students, researchers, and others join!’
For better healthcare in the Netherlands
With Tech for Health, the university not only involves the TU Delft alumni community with research in the field of healthcare, but it also fuels the belief that technology can make the difference. Via a combined fundraising effort, these scientists are given the opportunity to expand labs, increase research capacity and accelerate their progress.
