What is SensUs?

SensUs is the annual international student competition in the field of molecular biosensing. Student teams from universities all around the world are challenged to design and build their own biosensor within an impressively short period of time of only 9 months. In SensUs 2019, fourteen universities from 4 continents will participate in the competition. In August, all teams come to Eindhoven to demonstrate their prototypes and compete against other student teams for several awards.

The current organization consists of five subgroups: Technology, Events, External Relations, Public Relations, Strategy & Innovation and Chairs & Co.
