Medical Delta Meeting Place - on nanotech and more



11:30 – 17:00


LUMC, Leiden


Medical Delta Meeting Place - Meet fellow researchers/clinicians/engineers/designers


A different perspective to the same challenge will broaden your mind. Multidisciplinary collaboration helps you to find unexpected solutions. A new technology might increase the level of innovation/novelty of your research and the impact of your research results. So why not discuss your ideas, novel technologies and problems with other researchers, engineers, designers or clinicians. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to meet other experts in medical technology, life sciences and health care from ErasmusMC, TUDelft, Leiden University and LUMC and develop new collaborations around the corner.


The Boerhaave Plein at LUMC will become a vibrant market and meeting place:

  • With demonstrations by researchers of their technology for practical solutions;

  • With space to put up posters;

  • With pitch sessions where for example a clinician presents a daily problem he/she faces in patient care or a researcher presents a newly developed technology that could be used for a variety of clinical/research applications;

  • Excursions to for example the mobility lab, Leiden Genome Technology Center, Instrumentation R&D unit, and imaging facilities (details will follow);

  • And to join forces for upcoming calls

The demonstrations and poster space are accessible all afternoon. The pitch sessions and excursions are programmed according a time schedule that will be published in advance. Lunch and afternoon drinks will be served.

Pitch Programme

Based on the present expertise in the research institutions and our view on upcoming calls, we suggest the following ’hot topics’ for the pitches.
- Immunology & infections
- Screening models (drug discovery and development)
- Chronic diseases and e-health
- Nanotech
- Healthy brain, healthy behaviour & self-management
- Instruments, tools and their design
- Novel technologies (fundamental and applied)
- Oncology

Preliminary set-up

For Rotterdam and Delft researchers: we are thinking about arranging buses to bring everybody to Leiden.
Our target groups are: ALL researchers from Professors to PhD, Master students and the Medical Center care staff.


If you want to visit this event, give a demonstration (matchmaking), present a poster or give a 2- minute pitch, you can register here.
