The biggest challenge of SensUs 2020 was transforming a fully physical SensUs Event into a fully digital Event. It is awesome to look back at a resilient and creative Organization that made SensUs 2020 work. Enjoy the SensUs Event 2020 by watching the aftermovie on our YouTube channel.

Online networking events

In November, SensUs went to the World of Health Care and MEDICA, two online events to explore healthcare developments and the medical technology industry. Even though the events could not take place physically, the digital environments gave us the opportunity to expand our network. During these events, External Relations Department members attended multiple inspirational dialogues and got in contact with people with interesting views on innovation within the healthcare field. We are looking forward to attending more events in the future!

The SensUs Organization wishes you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
