Health & Technology
We are on a mission to improve life-long health for all
Science, Education & Innovation festival
It is our absolute pleasure to invite you to our annual Science, Education and Innovation festival. The festival provides an open platform to celebrate and share projects and achievements with our community, and to co-create solutions to sustain the future of healthcare. We bring you pioneer perspectives on the sustainability of our healthcare, inevitable transitions and the urgency for converging disciplines in our quest for solutions. In a dialogue about this extremely complex challenge, we invite you to co-create with us the future of healthcare.
It will take place on Thursday 8 December at the iconic Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam.
Mission and vision
Increased life span, socioeconomic inequalities, new demands arising with increasing data resources, and rapidly increasing healthcare costs challenge the sustainability of our healthcare system. Traditional approaches no longer suffice to address these challenges. Convergence of separated domains in science is therefore essential.
By joining forces, Erasmus MC, EUR and TU Delft are creating a stimulating and efficient cross-pollination between ideas, procedures, instruments and products. Convergence for Health & Technology provides unique opportunities to address the challenges faced by our healthcare system and to promote health and social participation for all.
health and disease
We want to understand the molecular basis of life and disease across the scales from molecule to patient
Improving health journeys
We will develop novel technology, including imaging technology, devices, and artificial intelligence tools, to facilitate new possibilities for prevention, diagnostics, cure and care.
Human-centred technology & AI for health
We will promote individual health, implement effective prevention strategies, early disease detection, and more personalised treatment from the earliest moments and throughout life.
Technology-supported transition in healthcare
We will contribute to the creation of a data-driven, resilient, inclusive, value-based & affordable healthcare system by deploying smart digital and enabling health technologies.
At Erasmus MC, the first Convergence Square facilitates converging conversations between the three institutions. We offer workspaces/ lab room/ event space that can be booked on a daily basis or for a running projects. Come and start converging at our rather rectangular Convergence Square.
