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 2022, students from all over the world compete to make biosensors for measuring acute inflammation focussing on sepsis. 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.
