5 Partners, 5 Years, 5 July 2023

Time to celebrate e/MTIC research, innovations and collaboration towards a Fast Track to Clinical Innovation

On 05 July , we give the floor to:

  • e/MTIC Alumni: sharing their experiences from PhD candidate to working with one of our partners
  • e/MTIC Researchers (PhD, PD, EngD, MSc): to exchange ideas via posters and pitches
  • e/MTIC Experts, supervisors and Taskforce teams: who went above and beyond to support the valuble research and its researchers

Our Research Areas

e/MTIC aims to strengthen the institutionalized collaboration between regional partners focusing on research and innovation in pre-defined clinical domains. Initially these are the domains in which we already excel internationally, i.e. perinatal and cardiovascular health along with sleep medicine


4TU.Health Poster Competition


Three prizes awarded

The poster competition is part of the 4TU.Federation-Health collaboration. PhD students in health and technology were challenged to present their research in an open, engaging way. 45 PhD candidates from 4 technical universities participated in this competition of which three TU/e PhDs working within e/MTIC projects!


e/MTIC winners

Emma Moonen is one of the three winners of this competition with her research poster “Wearable sweat sensing device for monitoring sweat rate from single glands in sedentary state”.

Both Dennis van de Sande and Terese Hellström secured a place amongst the 8 finalists.

Remote monitoring via Smart Patch

Video made by ZorgVanNu

Developped within e/MTIC: a smart patch that measures, among other things, the patient's heart rate and breathing from a distance. Wherever it is. The Catharina hospital in Eindhoven uses the patch for various conditions or treatments. In the video we share their experiences with the Philips healthdot.

Zorg van Nu is an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS)


Bringing technical innovations all the way from early research to implementation and commercialization can often take a long time. The goal of the Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC) is to create and expand an ecosystem that strongly increases the speed of high-tech health innovation, maximizing value for patients. We consider such an ecosystem to be an unmet need and a unique opportunity for the Brainport region to make significant contributions to visionary new developments in healthcare. e/MTIC is a large-scale research collaboration between Catharina Hospital, Maxima Medical Center, Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy and Sleep Center, TU/e and Royal Philips Eindhoven in the domains cardiovascular medicine, perinatal medicine and sleep medicine.

Medtech Day 2023

MedTech Day 2023 - An integrated approach for future-proof healthcare

On Friday, 22 September 2023, the second MedTech Day will take place at the TU/e on the occasion of the inauguration of Prof. Dr. Arthur Bouwman. This conference is organised by the Center for Care & Cure Technology and the Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC).

Our healthcare is under pressure. How to future-proof our healthcare systems? An integral, multidisciplinary approach to healthcare innovation is our best chance to provide structural support for future healthcare challenges. Technological innovations are essential for this road to sustainable healthcare that is accessible to everyone. During this conference, we will share the stories and experiences of our clinicians, professors, young researchers and other MedTech professionals.

Bridging the gap between doctors and technology


The central thread of my career lies in high-tech innovation in healthcare and that is also my passion. My experience in industry is largely complementary to the knowledge TU/e already has.  I believe that it is exactly this combination that is really powerful and will help me to extend and strengthen health research, innovation and education.
