SensUs is a community for open innovation in the field of sensors for health.
We monitor how well we eat, how long we sleep, and how many steps we take. In an increasingly digitized world, we are becoming more active participants in our own personal health. However, in the current care system when becoming ill you are treated in a ‘one size fits all’ way, without taking into account that we are all different and that our bodies change over time. What if we could easily measure what’s inside of our bodies at any given moment? This could be made possible by the use of biosensors. The aim of SensUs is to stimulate innovation in the field of biosensors.
The SensUs Community
SensUs aims to raise awareness about the possibilities that biosensing can offer to the life of patients and to health care in general. To spread this awareness on a worldwide scale, an online platform enables everybody from all over the world to view and experience the SensUs Contest.
Our community consists out of healthcare providers, patients, students, alumni, industry, and key stakeholders. We bring this community together in many different ways; the stakeholders meet each other during the SensUs Innovation Days. In addition to this, we have developed SensUs Connect, a platform to bring different parties in touch, sharing knowledge and connections.
Bringing stakeholders together
During the SensUs Innovation Days, we have different activities our stakeholders can participate in:
- The Event, where the students present their prototype biosensor to the world;
- Meet The Partners, where students and companies are brought together through an interactive program;
- The Express Venture Building Program, where students are inspired to create their own startup company;
- The partner network moment, where professionals in the field of biosensing are brought together;
- High school projects where young and ambitious high school students work on a theoretical biosensor;
- Professional courses where professionals learn more about the field of biosensing.
The activities encourage a closely connected community to establish a future in sensors for health through collaboration and open innovation.
