Health & Bio Engineering


The EuroTech Universities each engage in multi-scale approaches towards patient care and public health, spanning research and development, services, technology transfer and public as well as professional education. Successful applications embrace not only the medical and biological but also the social, ethical, legal and economic dimensions of this field. They combine new technologies in life sciences, engineering, informatics and communication, ensuring a number of opportunities for high-level interdisciplinary research and innovation.

EuroTech Universities Working Groups are active in a number of medical research fields, such as Ambient Assisted Living, Health Gaming, Soundcare as well as imaging technologies, ranging from In Vivo Imaging, Multi-Model Functional Bio-Photonic Imaging to Translational Brain Imaging and Integrating Imaging Processes). The Brussels Office hosted and co-organized a series of workshops with and for researchers active in the field:

  • Personalized Healthcare October 2013
  • Three follow-up workshops on Bio-imaging in June and November 2014 and in December 2015
  • Soundcare in September 2015
  • Health Gaming in January 2016


  • The EuroTech Universities project Multimodal, Functional Bio-Photonic Imaging (FBI) coordinated by DTU was initiated on 01.10.2016. The project brings together companies like NKT Photonics, Philips and Zeiss to collaborate with the four EuroTech Universities, a hospital and selected international research centers on fostering a new generation of young researchers on an emerging imaging platform and translating it into clinical and biological applications. During the next four years, 15 early stage researchers will benefit from the research environment and facilities offered by the consortium. Read more
  • The EuroTech Universities project REACH succeeded in securing EU funding from Horizon2020. The project “Responsive Engagement of the Elderly Promoting Activity and Customized Healthcare” (REACH), involves all four EuroTech Universities (coordinated by TUM) and 17 other partners from industry and research institutes. The project, which resulted from the first workshop on Personalized Healthcare organized by the Brussels Office in October 2013, will receive €4.588 million from H2020 for a period of four years.
