Health is part of our DNA. The two founders of Green Energy Park, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB – Free University of Brussels) and UZ Brussel (UZB – Brussels University Hospital), are strongly committed to this vast field.

It’s safe to say that the proximity of both the university hospital and the university with its various faculties working on this topic will be a huge advantage for your innovation project. Have you considered the benefits of joining such a productive ecosystem?

Health involves many different aspects that are undergoing further research and development, often using a cross-disciplinary approach, including medicine, pharmaceutics, biotechnology, nutrition, plus cell, gene and immunotherapy. One example is a prestigious inter-university research project currently under way with the first 7 Tesla MRI scanner in Flanders, which is leading to rapid advances in medical imagery.

And just imagine what valuable insights an experimental operating theatre could bring to your innovation project. In a realistic but safe environment, you could “play around” with different technologies such as robotics and micro-electronics, try out new devices or even test and refine a completely new approach to specific surgical procedures. This is just a sample of what’s possible.

Energy and climate

Technological innovation provides a solution to calls for a sustainable energy transition. You can test more or less anything in our carbon-neutral multi-energy grid.

Platform technologies

Key enabling technologies (KETs) play a vital role in tackling society’s challenges. Work with us to find out how and why.
