Co-creation of solutions
The cornerstone of the TransMedTech Institute is its transdisciplinary, intersectoral, open-innovation ecosystem. Better known as a living lab, this is a new-design approach to health research and innovation.
The living-lab model collectively involves researchers, engineers, students, physicians, caregivers, industries, policy-makers, governments and patients in the rapid generation of innovative technology solutions and approaches to healthcare delivery.
- Accelerated processes of development, clinical validation, and transfer to the healthcare system.
- Better matching of technology solutions to the needs of healthcare users.
- Promote collaborative transdisciplinary and intersectoral research as well as innovation and creativity, via the living-lab approach.
- Accelerate transfers to industry as well as integration of novel treatment modes and new technologies into the healthcare system.
- Target significant social and economic impacts.
- Establish international networks and partnerships.
- Attract and train qualified next-generation medical-technology professionals with an accent on diversity.
- Develop a medical-technology showcase and centre of attraction.
