Vision

Vision

An important aim in healthcare is to let people live high-quality lifes in their own environments. Miniaturized and easy to use biochemical sensing devices will become increasingly important, for the monitoring, treatment and coaching of patients. As a consequence, over the coming decades biochemical sensing technologies are needed which will be small, sensitive, accurate, easy to use, cost effective, and versatile.

Mission

Mission

The mission of SensUs is to stimulate the development of molecular health sensing technologies by organizing an international competition for teams of students. In a friendly competitive manner, SensUs challenges multidisciplinary teams of students to conceive and build innovative molecular biosensing systems. The competition gives students a unique chance to gain experience in goal-oriented multidisciplinary teamwork and in innovative technological design.

Goal

Objective

The technical objective of the competition changes annually, according to a roadmap that is to be jointly established with different stakeholders. We foresee a long list of possible challenges, e.g. analyte types and concentrations, matrix, speed, precision, sample volume, instrument size, multiplexing, in-vitro and in-vivo, sensing combined with actuation, etcetera. Stakeholders are welcome to give input for the development of a roadmap of technological and application challenges for the SensUs competition in the coming years.

Timeline

Picture

September 2016

The SensUs organization starts preparations for SensUs 2017.

Movie

Between September and November 2016

Student teams will be formed in the different international universities. Ten different universities will participate in SensUs 2017 from three different continents.

Picture

Between November 2016 and August 2017

The student teams will conceive and build biosensor systems at their own universities. The teams are expected to make use of expertise and resources in their own environments. Within the biosensing system, the students should contribute clearly identifiable innovative aspects themselves.

Location

8th and 9th of September 2017

The teams will convene at the contest in the second weekend of September 2017. All teams will come to Eindhoven where they will present and demonstrate their biosensing systems in a public event. Several prizes will be given e.g. for functional performance, originality and translation/innovation potential.
