Student competition on biosensors for health
The mission of SensUs is to stimulate the development of biosensors in a friendly but competitive manner, whereby students make and design innovative biosensors. Each year, a societally impactful indicator of health is chosen as an objective in collaboration with different stakeholders.
An important aim in healthcare is to keep people healthy as long as possible and to enable people in need of care to live a high-quality life in their own environments. Healthcare is developing toward a world wherein care is delivered in a highly personalized manner, attuned to the status of the patient, based on actual, precise and reliable data.
SensUs stimulates information sharing and community development for continuous innovation in biosensors. It forms a platform for open innovation and welcomes stakeholders such as healthcare organizations, patient organizations, R&D funding organizations, and companies to give input for the competition (e.g. regarding the technical goals of the competition) or otherwise support the competition.
The current organization consists of four subgroups: Technology, Events, External Relations and Media; supported by a chair, vice-chair, treasurer and secretary. The organization is multidisciplinary, since there are many different aspects in organizing an international competition. You are stimulated to take initiative and let your creativity flow.
