The winner: Generation Care
The ‘Generation Care’ team was a winner. Over the next three months, they will receive 25,000 euros to study how they can make society more healthy and self-reliant. Team member and Medical process engineer Teddy Vijfvinkel from TU Delft calls it ‘From cure to caring’: ‘We place society on a matrix. We classify society from healthy to unhealthy and from self-reliant to needy. In this way we define the problems and look for concrete solutions for those problems.’
Professor Richard Goossens was impressed by Generation Care: ‘Here we see real Convergence, the people in this team did not work together before and have thought outside of the box.’ The multidisciplinary team consists of 4 researchers, 2 doctors and 1 project manager. The Battle of the Minds was organized by Convergence for Health and Technology, the research collaboration between TU Delft, EUR and Erasmus MC.
