The Center for Medical Imaging North East Netherlands (CMI-NEN) is a cooperation with the University of Groningen (RUG), University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), the University of Twente (UT), and Siemens Healthineers Netherlands (Siemens). CMI-NEN aims to promote the development and validation of new medical Imaging techniques, and investigation of their (cost-)effectiveness in order to improve outcomes and sustainability in healthcare. We achieve this by clustering Medical Imaging and Diagnostic research into four distinct clusters based on the strengths of the University of Twente and UMCG/RUG: Imaging, Data Sciences, Image guided therapy and Health
technology assessment.
The goal of the Booster call is to improve collaborations in Medical Imaging research between UT, UMCG/RUG and Siemens Healthineers Netherlands. The 1 – max 2 year projects will be focused on setting up or strengthening collaboration between UT, UMCG/RUG and Siemens and getting first results and knowledge covering one of the 4 clusters. Projects should build on the complementary knowledge of researchers from both universities and industry in order to achieve synergy effects by technical-clinical-industrial collaboration. The outcomes of the booster projects are expected to form the backbone of subsequent larger collaborative proposals targeting extramural funding.
In total 4 projects of 15k Euro will be granted; 1 per research cluster. Final decision to be based on evaluation results and expected proposals budget. At the first coming CMI-NEN symposium on 22 April 2022 the 4 winners will be awarded after a presentation of the 8 finalists.
