SensUs is a yearly international Student Competition on sensors for health. By involving students, industry, and health partners we strive to accelerate the development of sensors for better healthcare.

During SensUs 2021, students from all over the world compete to make biosensors for measuring acute respiratory viruses. All Teams will show, test and pitch their biosensors online on the 3rd of September during the SensUs Event. The biosensors will be judged on multiple criteria such as creativity and industrialization potential. This will be done by representatives of academia, industry, and healthcare.
