This year's edition

SensUs 2020

This has been the fifth year of the SensUs Student Competition. The Organization has challenged 15 Teams from all over the world to develop innovative biosensing systems for the treatment of epilepsy, measuring the biomarker unbound valproate. On the 28th of August, the Teams have presented their biosensor to the world in our first fully online Event. Despite the circumstances, the Event was a huge success and we hope to see you all next year!

Re-experience SensUs 2020 on SensUs Digital. Our online platform features a livestream, live results, Team Pages, voting for your favorite Team and more.

An international competition

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 2020, students from all over the world competed to make biosensors for measuring unbound valproate, a drug that is used to treat epilepsy. All Teams have showcased their biosensors on the 28th of August during the SensUs Event. The biosensors have been judged on multiple criteria such as creativity, and industrialization potential. This has been done by representatives of academia, industry, and healthcare.
