Moore4Medical project kicks off
The ECSEL Joint Undertaking Moore4Medical kicked off last June 2020 with the overarching objective to accelerate innovation in electronic medical devices. Moore4Medical is masterminded by hDMT PI professor Ronald Dekker (Philips Research & ECTM) and sees important involvement and vast opportunities for TU Delft's Microelectronics department.
The project addresses emerging medical applications and technologies that offer significant new opportunities for the Electronic Systems & Components (ECS) industry, including: bioelectronic medicines, Organ-on-Chip, drug adherence monitoring, smart ultrasound, radiation-free interventions and continuous monitoring. The new technologies will help to fight the increasing cost of healthcare by reducing the need for hospitalisation, helping to develop personalized therapies, and realising intelligent point-of-care diagnostic tools.
Moore4Medical will bring together 66 selected companies, universities and institutes from 12 countries who will develop open technology platforms for these emerging fields to help them bridge "the Valley of Death" in shorter time and at lower cost.
TU Delft's Microelectronics department leads two of the six workpackages represented in Moore4Medical: the Implanatable Devices workpackage, led by Dr. Vasiliki "Vasso" Giagka (BE & Fraunhofer IZM), and the Organ-on-Chip workpackage, led by Dr. Massimo "Max" Mastrangeli (ECTM).
