Healthy solutions from excellent science

Society presents many challenges in the area of healthcare:
•    Increasing ageing
•    More people with a chronic disease
•    More lifestyle related diseases like obesity and diabetes
•    A rapid decline in the number of healthcare personnel
•    The expense of optimum healthcare

Science for society
Technology has to offer solutions for these societal challenges. It is not without good reason that health has been one of the main focal areas for our university for many years. TU/e was the first Dutch university to start up an engineering degree in Biomedical Engineering. And in 2011 Health is one of our three Strategic Areas – Energy and Smart Mobility are the others – and we are causing a bit of a stir around the world with our research in this area. The prime mover of Health at TU/e is Roel Fonville, former Senior Vice-President at Philips Healthcare Nederland. The arrival of Roel and the traditionally strong links between TU/e and industry and healthcare institutions provide the right conditions to translate our prominent research into new products and services. In other words, science for society.
