We are HTRIC

HTRIC connects research, health technology and clinical practice for more healthy years

Health Technology for more healthy years

Technological innovations are essential when it comes to more healthy years. The challenges in healthcare are substantial. If we want to keep healthcare manageable in the future, the contribution of technological innovations and the cooperation between clinical practice and technology are an absolute must. Together these can lead to fewer invasive procedures, faster recovery and earlier detection. A lot of this technology is already being developed, however too often the solutions do not reach the patient, or they do so too late. As a connector within a fragmented landscape, HTRIC brings people and domains together. HTRIC makes sure that world-class research actually will contribute to people’s health. Whether you work for a company, study at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences or are a PhD student at the RUG… You will find the amplifier of our collective innovation force within HTRIC!

Can you imagine a place where world-wide innovations in devices, (bio)materials and coatings find their way to first-in-human application? With direct access to lab facilities and the opportunity to share knowledge with students and other members of the community?
