Our Resource Centre for Healthcare Technologies (SANTEC) department focuses its research activities on healthcare technologies.
Its mission consists primarily of improving healthcare by developing methods, tools, services and solutions that can be applied by healthcare professionals, patients and citizens on a daily basis.
Developing innovative technologies
Improving healthcare by developing methods, tools, services and solutions that can be applied on a daily basis – whether for a healthcare professional, patient or citizen – is our primary objective. We meet this challenge by developing new healthcare technologies and by analysing their impact on patients and the healthcare system. Our mission: to develop innovative technologies with a promising impact on public health. Our expertise in research and development includes the fields of cutting-edge health informatics, medical informatics for telemedicine systems, bio-mechatronics, medical imaging and radioprotection.
The Resource Centre for Health Care Technologies (SANTEC)
The SANTEC research department is a team comprising more than 40 healthcare technology experts divided into two research units with complementary competences. Our facilities are based in Esch-Belval and there we conduct our activities in partnership with a large network of institutional and business partners.
We are also actively involved in the national e-Health programmes and follow international e-Health initiatives. We provide assistance in the areas of patient data confidentiality, medical databases and technical and semantic interoperability.
We contribute to CRP Henri Tudor innovation programmes, particularly to the Health programme, through our advanced innovation and research services, such as the development, prototyping and validation of integrated healthcare solutions and of e-Health, as well as providing consultancy in and assessment of health technologies.
Our investment for the future
We contribute our expertise in biomedical and healthcare applications to the two investment programmes, “Nanostructured and functional polymer-based materials: from macromolecules to applications” and “Service science and innovation” that are being developed within other CRP Henri Tudor research departments.
