Closing event Geneess Project

Smart Health Solutions


Good health is a precious asset. Evolutions in science, production technologies, IT, life sciences, society etc. enable a smart support of health and health care. At this event, the focus will be on nano-electronics as a powerful tool for the development of smart diagnostics, smart monitoring and active stimulation.

Speakers from industry and research institutions introduce you to the field of smart health, by sharing their experiences and inspiring innovations. They will focus on both the product and its application, and the development phase.

This is the final event arising from the GENEESS project (GEzonder door Nano-Elektronica En Slimme Specialisatie (2013-2016)) in which DSP Valley and IMEC bundled forces to support companies in developing smart health solutions by using micro and nano-electronics.
At the same time, we proudly launch XKET4HEALTH. With XKET4HEALTH, DSP Valley and FlandersBio will nurture an ecosystem in which 2 key enabling technologies – micro- and nano-electronics and life sciences.
