Better healthcare thanks to Delft technology

In many countries, such as the Netherlands, high quality healthcare is under pressure due to increasing demand, a shortage of healthcare staff and rising costs. The corona virus crisis has shown us just how fragile our healthcare system is. It’s clear that something needs to change. The system needs to become more efficient and more effective, and this is where Delft technology is set to make a major impact. Delft University Fund has launched the Tech for Health campaign to draw attention to healthcare research being done right here at TU Delft, including innovations that lead to faster diagnoses, more effective and rapid treatments, and shorter waiting times. In these research projects, we are working closely with leading medical institutes such as Erasmus MC in Rotterdam.

Bringing together technology, medicine and the social sciences is a necessary step towards a healthier future

― Prof. Ernst Kuipers, Chair of the Executive Board, Erasmus MC
