Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven

The purpose of C3Te is to expand synergistic partnerships between the departments of Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics, medical centers and industry that are crucial to create novel healthcare technologies, and thereby reduce costs while improving quality of care.

C3Te focuses on multi-disciplinary research in the care and cure domain

The Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te) focuses on multi-disciplinary research in the care and cure domain. By connecting the technological strengths of Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics with clinical partners and industry, collective knowledge is expanded leading to sustainable improvement of healthcare. In the last years, C3Te has established a strategic network, in which collaborative innovations for health care in the areas of multimodal sensing, advanced imaging, ICT embedded systems and ubiquitous computing played a crucial role for improving diagnosis and treatment of patients. Additionally, the development of ambulant and unobtrusive monitoring systems contributed to adapting treatment approaches for enhancing patient well-being.  

Brainpower in comic book form

What's not to like, an inspiring lecture given by an enthusiastic professor. An upbeat message and decades of research distilled into a single slide. But PhD candidate Elles Raaijmakers is keen to show the other side of the story: failed experiments, countless setbacks and years of hard work. While working as a member of the Education Team, she carried out doctoral research on the influence of electrical fields on brain cells. Instead of handing out a hefty thesis – although she has written one – she drew an accessible guide to her research experiences in the form of a comic book. On Thursday, June 8, she defended her research at the Department of Electrical Engineering. Read more


"Draadloos het hoofd in om een implantaat op te laden"

On the 23rd of May, Huib Visser and Tom van Nunen appeared in NRC with an article on wireless charging of brain implants. Please note that this article is only in Dutch.

Research programs

C3Te aims to create synergistic partnerships between academia, medical centers and industry to strengthen knowledge that is crucial to create novel healthcare technologies to transform the future of healthcare. This 'golden triangle' will ensure connections between engineering research advances and the need for care from the society. Therefore, the focus of the research program is mainly structured around Technology Solutions and Application Areas. 

Science Cafés and Symposia

We are pleased to announce that Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te) is organizing bimonthly Science Cafés on the first Friday of the odd months. Under normal circumstances these Science Cafés are organized from 14.30u-16.00u in Walhalla (Flux 6.154), followed by drinks to meet the speakers and interact with other members of the audience. C3Te Science Cafés are announced in the TU/e Electrical Engineering Newsletter and for more information and registration to join a Science Café you can always contact

The synergy of technology and biomedical sciences could generate substantial gains for partners collaborating within the field of care & cure. In general, through tight collaborative approaches ensure that technology development keeps a focus on the various technological, economic and value-based care demand that influence the application in the healthcare area. An important strategic partner is the Eindhoven MedTech Center (e/MITC) with its large-scale research collaboration between the Catharina Hospital, the Maxima Medical Center, Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy and Sleep Center, Royal Philips Eindhoven and the Eindhoven University of Technology.


C3Te supports a special master program Care and Cure.

The healthcare market is an increasingly important consumer of technological and, especially, electrical engineering applications. These range from the complex and specialist equipment in hospitals, such as MRI scanners, to the small gadgets and tools that enable people to continue living in their own home environments for longer, such as a wireless alarm system. Between these two extremes lie countless applications such as pacemakers, monitors of all sorts of biological signals, diagnostic equipment and resources used in the curative process. The development of these applications is the subject of the Care and Cure program. This is a highly dynamic field which integrates knowledge in the fields of electrical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, and biology. Read more
