Opening SensUs 2018

The official opening of SensUs 2018 takes place in the Blauwe Zaal. Everybody is welcome to join this opening, in which the vice-chair and founder of SensUs will speak and the jury is presented.

-
Market

On the market you can see our student teams, partners and medical professionals. Come take a look! Speak with them and share ideas and experiences about biosensing.

-
Testing event

Each team presents their biosensor and performs live measurements with given samples. The sensors will be tested on sample volume, time to result, and reported concentration. Feel free to follow the process of the measurements and have a talk with the students to understand the biosensor they have designed and the process they have been through.

-
Technical pitches

Each team will give a technical pitch, which should give the jury a good impression of the technical aspects of the developed biosensor. Teams could for example pitch about the technological concepts, the way they optimized the speed of their device, sensitivity, detection range, required sample volume, sample handling, and technological novelty, etc. Are you interested in these aspects of the biosensors? Come and listen to the technical pitches of the teams!

-
Translation potential pitches

SensUs 2018 has a special focus on the business models of the teams. How will they bring their prototypes to the market and how can they be applied in healthcare? In the translation potential pitch, the teams should give the jury a good impression of the suitability and thoughtfulness towards future applications in healthcare and towards industrialization. This should include the business model that the teams have developed in the entrepreneurship training. Do you like to know how the teams envision the future of their developed biosensor? And are you interested in the business models the teams developed? Come and listen to the translation potential pitches!
