The University of Twente (UT) is the coordinating Partner of the RE-SAMPLE project. It is a young, entrepreneurial, technical research university with over 3200 scientists and professionals conducting pioneering research on nanotechnology, IT, biomedical technology, but also governance studies, psychology and geoinformation / earth observation sciences. This research ultimately combines scientific excellence with a sharp eye for economic and societal impact: the UT is highly successful as a business generator, with over 50 new spin-off companies annually.
The UT has a dedicated strategic research programme in Personalized eHealth Technology (PeHT). In this cross-faculty programme all research groups whose work focuses on eHealth technologies are working together on the healthcare of tomorrow. These include: Computer Science, Biomedical Signals and Systems (BSS), Health Technology and Services Research (HTSR), Design, Human Media Interaction (HMI), Psychology, and Data Science (DS), just to name a few.
PeHT aims to research, develop and demonstrate beyond state-of-the-art solutions for smart remote monitoring and artificial coaching and other services that support people with chronic conditions in their well-being. The programme works with a range of industrial and clinical partners. It brings expertise in clinical research methodology, evaluation and data driven health services research, and innovative methods to translate fundamental research to clinical applications and individualised health technologies to support personalised medicine.
