eHealth week 2017

Slides from SMB meeting ‘Crossing borders; boost your health innovations!’ now available

We’re proud of yet another succesful SMB meeting that focused on crossing borders. The meeting was held on Tuesday January 24, 2017 at Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen in close cooperation with our partners OostNV and Health Valley.

Did you know that OostNV can help boost your health innovation abroad through progams like Boost4Health and Interreg? And Health Valley has an extensive international network as well? All presentations are available on our website should you have missed the meeting or wish to look at the information again.

We would like to thank the two entrepreneurs, Laszlo Bax (Braingaze) and Ypke van Oosterhout (Xenikos), who took the time to share their international experiences (tips & trics, do’s and don’ts) with regards to venturing abroad. We would have never guessed it would take more than 5 months to open a bank account in a foreign country. Improvement is much needed here!

We finished off the meeting with drinks & bites and of course ample room for networking! Please click on this link to look back at the presentations of January 24, 2017.

Theme: ‘Crossing Borders: Boost your health innovation!’
In close cooperation with OostNV and Health Valley

We will start the new year with an inspiring session on international growth by sharing information on the international programs Boost4Health and Mind Interreg. And of course we will be sharing experiences with and from other entrepreneurs.

Both programs have the objective to link international innovative entrepreneurs and SME’s to each other and to knowledge institutes to enable cooperation between suitable partners and to accelerate the development in the area of validation and market access. OostNV is looking for parties that are interested in this type of cooperation and/or open to contribute to the growth of SME’s from other countries. Both programs offer (small) grant opportunities to enable international cooperation.

Braingaze; new start-up addition to Novio Tech Campus

Good news! From February 1, 2017 onwards Novio Tech Campus welcomes a new tenant: Braingaze.

Braingaze, founded in 2013, develops next-generation Mind Tracking Solutions that predict and identify personal behavior for clinical and commercial applications. The unique method of Braingaze (patented in 44 countries) is based on the predictive power of small eye movements as a marker for cognitive visual processing. They call this eye movement ‘Cognitive Vergence’. The Braingaze method is non-invasive, fast and robust, and does not require expensive hardware. As a first commercial application Braingaze has clinically validated a unique solution to more objectively diagnose ADHD in children.

Braingaze will present itself and its business case during the next SMB meeting on January 24, 2017 (Crossing Borders; Boost your Health innovation). For more information, click here.
