Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center

Improving value based healthcare by creating and expanding an ecosystem that enables a fast track to high-tech health innovations


Healthcare innovations that enhance daily life

Bringing technical innovations all the way from early research to implementation and commercialization can often take a long time. In healthcare innovation, in particular, this lost time can often equate to lost lives. 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 the Catharina Hospital (CH), the Maxima Medical Center (MMC), Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy and Sleep Center (KH), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Royal Philips Eindhoven (RPE) in the domains cardiovascular medicine, perinatal medicine and sleep medicine. The partnership has evolved over several decades, has a strong scientific and valorization track record and currently encompasses around 100 PhD students, supervised by a similar number of experts from the various partners.

Our partners

The Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Centre is a large-scale research collaboration in the Eindhoven region between The Catharina Hospital (CH), the Maxima Medical Center (MMC), Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy and Sleep Center (KH), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), and Royal Philips Eindhoven (RPE).

Festive kickoff of e/MTIC

e/MTIC aspires to further expand its activities to allow for the strong acceleration of high-tech health innovation, from early research up to and including clinical implementation and commercialization, with maximized patient value in mind.

On June 14th  the e/MTIC partners gave an impression of the results achieved thus far, and insights in what the future holds through lectures, pitches, a panel discussion and a Tech fair. Studio040 captured the event in an inspiring video (Dutch spoken).


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 the SA Health.

High impact medical innovations thanks to flagship collaboration

The cross-appointments, i. e. people with positions along the entire chain, are very important for the success of the collaboration between Eindhoven University of Technology, Philips, the Catharina Hospital, the Maxima Medical Centre and the Kempenhaege Expertise Centre. Physicians advise Philips and are a part-time professor at the university. Philips people are part-time professor or advisor at the TU/e and a TU/e-employee can also work at Philips or the hospital.
