To support innovations in the healthcare domain at the crossroads of Key Enabling Technologies,, DSP Valley & Medtech Flanders have joined forces in developing a new innovative company network named

One of main objectives is to facilitate the development of collaborative projects between companies and between companies and research institutes. We will not only facilitate, but also support you further in the different steps that need to be taken to realise your idea.


In order to do so, we are launching a set of workshops in Q1&2 of 2019. The first one will be on “Disease Prevention” and will take place in Leuven.

The afternoon programme will start with short presentations setting the scene whereafter we give the opportunity to companies and academics to pitch (10 minute presentations) and highlight project ideas in the field of disease prevention.
These presentations will be followed by breakout sessions were the projects can be discussed in more details with the workshop attendees.

So if you want to develop new life sciences, digital or medical technological solutions you can submit your project idea/project proposal (1 A4 max) and send it by Wednesday January 23th to

Please think broad: new technological solutions are emerging in the health space and disease prevention can be tackled from many different angles, including life style, early diagnosis, healthy food, monitoring etc.
