Prof. Erik Buskens

Erik Buskens, an expert in epidemiology and HTA at UMC Groningen focuses on "Healthy Ageing," addressing broad topics like aging, care networks, and health disparities. As the Netherlands and the rest of the world, experience a significant demographic shift, challenges, and opportunities arise in healthcare, necessitating innovative solutions that prioritize safety and affordability. These dynamics underline the importance of effective health strategies and policy discussions.

Nick van den Berg

I am Nick van den Berg, Head of Product Design within Micronit, where we develop Microfluidic products for life science and healthcare. With a team of Design Engineers, we are working hard to develop new products with our customers. From the first idea into manufacturing. I am always striving to improve our way of working to reduce (technical) risks and make a functional product that meets the requirements. By doing this I hope to give my two kids also a great future where they can grow up worry-free.
