Health & Wellbeing
The average life expectancy in Europe continues to rise, and demand for care services will continue to increase in years ahead, as will their costs. We want to live longer in good health, yet there are comparatively fewer and fewer people who can provide care.
A healthcare transition is needed, with an increased focus on the design and implementation of miniaturised biomedical systems for precision medicine, personalised care and healthy lifestyle maintenance. This involves the design of both in-vivo and in-vitro devices and systems, along with advanced imaging and diagnostic instrumentation.
The overall aim is to contribute to faster and more accurate diagnostics, advanced therapy, improved health-related quality of life, and better prevention, care and cure, at reduced cost.
