Tech for Health | Thank you!
Tech for Health | Better care thanks to Delft technology
With the Tech for Health campaign, the university shined a spotlight on its research innovations that contribute to the improvement of healthcare, especially in countries like The Netherlands. This research often involves collaboration with medical institutes such as Erasmus MC in Rotterdam and LUMC in Leiden. TU Delft alumni were invited to meet the scientists behind this exciting research and to contribute to their important work. More than 1050 alumni made a financial contribution.
Delft health research in the spotlight
About 30% of all research at TU Delft is related to health and healthcare. We have been able to inform and inspire over 60,000 TU Delft alumni through the Tech for Health campaign. More than 1050 alumni made a financial contribution. Together with the donors of Delft University Fund, this has led to an amount of €175,364.
On November 2, during the Medical Delta Conference 2021, Joop Heijenrath, Treasurer Board Delft University Fund, presented this amount to Prof. Richard Goossens and David de Glint, board member of Medical Delta. They received the check on behalf of the seven scientists who participated in the Tech for Health campaign.
More than a sum of money
The Tech for Health campaign has been successfully completed. In addition to the received donations, the campaign created great exposure for TU Delft health research. The campaign also deliverd new connections between scientists and alumni, and new contacts with a number of relevant companies and institutional funds.
