On the 25th of September the Executive Committee visited University of Twente in Enschede for their monthly meeting.

The Executive Committee (EC) meets monthly to discuss ongoing business, scientific coordination, research projects and strategy & management of the programme as a whole. These meetings are mostly held online, but twice a year the EC aims to meet face-to-face combining the meeting with a site visit. In April the EC was hosted by the University of Groningen and now it was time to visit Enschede.

The afternoon was opened by prof. Tanya Bondarouk, the dean of the BMS Faculty at University of Twente, and prof. dr. Maroeska Rovers, Scientific Director of the TechMed Centre. After the introduction we joined a guided tour of the TechMed facility and its Simulation Centre. During the tour we learned more about the education opportunities in the collaborating faculties and innovative (e)Health technologies. After the tour we listened to inspirational pitches by a few SiA researchers and their UT colleagues. Then it was time for the Executive Committee meeting and the day was finished with a lovely dinner.

Thanks again to our UT colleagues for hosting us!
