To make a better connection between Photonics and Healthcare you are invited to Photonics in Health event.

Photonics is recognized as Key Enabling Technology and has a wide range of application areas, the most famous of which are communications and energy. But photonics also has possibilities in biomedical applications and healthcare, although they are not yet well known to clinicians. To make a better connection between Photonics and Healthcare, you are invited by Prof Andrea Fiore (TU/e) and the Center for Care & Cure Technology (C3Te, TU/e) to join this event.
