SmartHEALTH Open Day

Nov 28 2008 - 09:00
Nov 28 2008 - 13:00

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Open Day in the course of the EC-funded SmartHEALTH Integrated Project. Driven by key applications in cancer diagnostics, SmartHEALTH was conceived and constructed to address the development and delivery of the next generation of smart diagnostic devices.
The aim of the Open Day is to interact with the user community and gather expert opinion in order to fine-tune the alignment of project aims and market needs. We will do this by introducing the technology being developed within SmartHEALTH and having an open discussion to explore the opportunities and barriers for exploitation/commercialisation in the healthcare arena. In addition, this event will launch the SmartHEALTH User Group, the role of which will be to advise the project on how to integrate the project results speedily into European healthcare systems.

Ultra-Precision Positioning Systems - piezo drive systems as a future enabling technology

Nov 17 2008 - 14:00
Nov 17 2008 - 16:30

In light of the ever increasing industry-driven demand for accurate positioning, this symposium discusses the state of the art of precise positioning systems, with a focus on recent developments and applications of piezoelectric driving technology. Piezoelectric positioning systems are gaining maturity, and have gradually evolved into interesting - but sometimes unknown - alternatives to conventionally driven systems in a multitude of automation, biomedical, manufacturing and metrological applications.
