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!

HTRIC opening ceremony
HTRIC will officially launch on 4 March 2022. Register now and be the first to know all about the opening ceremony.
Just a few days into autumn, HTRIC managed to throw one of the most exciting events of the season: our very first Research Meetup. The turnout was overwhelming.
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?

‘Research should serve people in need instead of our own egos. Why is it that we can send rockets into space and build nuclear power plants, but cannot cure the diseases that claim lives around us every day?’
