MedTech Twente is the innovation hub for the accelerated development of medical technology.
Within MedTech Twente, businesses and health care institutions work together closely with researchers from the knowledge institutions to develop the health care innovations of tomorrow. Innovations are developed, validated and implemented in close collaboration between parties, facilitated and accelerated by supporting organizations such as Novel-T, OostNL, VitaalTwente, HIP, WTC and HealthValley. There is a reason why many successful MedTech companies – including Demcon, Medspray, Micronit, Lipocoat and IAMFluidics – were established and have grown in Twente.
- Large network with (inter)national partnerships
- From validation and support programs to steady business
- Access to high-grade labs and innovation centers
The partners of MedTech Twente are driven by a shared desire to work together on the development of medical innovations that will improve the quality and affordability of our health care. The collaboration between businesses, knowledge and health care institutions has resulted in a fertile ecosystem for innovations that make an invaluable contribution to the health care of the future.
The heart of the innovation cluster for medical technology is located in Enschede, at the innovation campus Kennispark Twente. In addition to the myriad spinoff businesses located at Kennispark, the University of Twente’s Techmed Centre and Nanolab are also just a stone’s throw away. Several Saxion lectorates and study programs form part of the innovation cluster, as does the ROC of Twente.
