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:
