Overview of Medical Innovation in Brabant

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the world. But also highlighted the fact that no diseases respect country borders. Before we start with our first keynote speaker, we will have a short video introduction to the wide medical research landscape going on in the Southern Netherlands.

We’ll cover Pivot Park Drug development,  Organ on Chip research and work to scale up regenerative medicine. All these research institutions are looking for partnerships in Japan.

We will also hear from Geert Langereis (IMEC- Holst Centre), on the broader program for bioelectronic medicine called autonomous therapeutics. These are advanced closed-loop systems that access the peripheral nervous system to monitor other organs in the body with the goal of improving personal health.

Corporate Vice President, GM, Life Sciences Business Div

Why FUJIFILM transformed into a Life Science company

Fujifilm in Tilburg is an important partner in several life-science projects. You will hear their name come up at universities and new industry pilot lines. But most people remember Fujifilm from their top-quality film products. But now that this consumer business has gone away, Fujiifilm has transformed itself into a life science company. At the Fujifilm facilities cells, cell culture media and other life sciences products are developed for various applications. We thought it is a perfect example of smart innovation, so it is a pleasure to hear from Yutaka Yamaguchi, Fujifilm about the challenges and successes of the journey.

Towards artificial organs by 2030.

Professor Fokko Wieringa (IMEC Holst Centre, Eindhoven) will share his international work to launch an eco-efficient portable, wearable kidney dialysis machine by 2024. But the ultimate goal is to create an artificial kidney that can be implanted in the body. Holst Centre is aiming for the realization of the implantable artificial kidney by 2030, using the latest Organ-on-Chip technologies using new biocompatible materials and nanotechnology. Wieringa estimates that an implantable artificial kidney could reduce the cost of caring for patients with kidney disease by 60 to 80 per cent.

RAI Automotive Industry NL

Managing Director

Breakthrough Smart Mobility Solutions for 2025 and beyond

The Director of RAI automotive Industry NL will give an overview of the solutions they are working on for the Mobility roadmap until 2030. With CO2 reduction at the top of the automotive industry's roadmap , many Dutch and Japanese companies are working together to deliver world-class technology as soon as possible. The Dutch Automotive Industry accounts for one of the largest export volumes in the Netherlands. This has a value of about Euro 20 billion annually, mostly exported to countries like Japan.  In a country with a high cost-structure success can only be achieved by delivering world-class technology. This keynote will give an overview of what's happening.

Towards smarter and more sustainable vehicles as soon as possible

TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Research) Traffic and Transport division in Helmond is currently working with several Japanese companies on advanced perception detection. Their slogan on the office wall reads " Society needs zero-impact powertrains tomorrow. We create them today!"  In order to reduce spiralling congestion on our roads, semi-autonomous smart truck “convoys” are now being trialled. This is all part of the 2025 roadmap which includes truck platooning and other systems for smart positioning and zero collisions.

Hydrogen

The other area of interest is alternative fuels for the hydrogen combustion engine. This is a field that TNO Helmond is developing with Japanese partners, including their modular energy management systems. This is a bespoke technology designed for automotive OEMs to implement hybrid technologies, including next-generation batteries as well as various types of fuel cells. Note that hydrogen fuel is going to be important to power large ships as well. The presentation gives a broad introduction to many areas that TNO is already active in. There will be more detail about the battery competence centre in the breakout session following the coffee break.

Parallel session on Healthcare

The Healthcare breakout session will be chaired by Ton van Mol, who will start with a presentation on the Holst Centre’s Innovations for Remote Patient Monitoring. The newly developed health patch is one such innovation. This smart plaster is equipped with printed electronics that measure and transmit the wearer’s heartbeat, respiration, blood oxygen saturation, and temperature. 

During the session we will also include the work of the Pivot Park Screening Centre, in Oss which has unique facilities to assist large and small pharmaceutical companies in early drug discovery.

Several companies on the Pivot Park are joining Fujifilm, and  innovative scale-ups such as: Vivolta , Stentit and Xeltis  to form the Smart Biomaterials Consortium to build one of the first RegMedX pilot lines 

Last but not least, TNO eFAM 3D Food & Pharma Printing will explain technology developments that increase the relevance of 3D pharmaceuticals & nutraceuticals printing.

Parallel session on Sustainable and Smart Mobility

Martijn Stamm and colleagues will start this breakout session by examining the work being done by TNO Helmond and partners such as ELEO on batteries for industrial vehicles.  This takes place at the Battery competence center. TNO will discuss the concept of a battery passport and why this is important. Brabant is also home to next-generation battery developers like LeydenJar and Lionvolt, On the automotive campus, several important developments are happening with solar cars, the most prominent being Lightyear. We will share updates.

Plus an update on the Eindhoven Engine with a video contribution by Maarten Steinbuch on how The Netherlands established the global standard for fast battery charging and the rapid rise of e-mobility in Europe. He emphasises the importance of the Battery Competence Center and international collaboration. 

We will learn about Japanese Mirai Data which is developing an autonomously controlled single-seater for older people. And Sekisui is a major Japanese materials company working in Brabant on designing safety technologies for both cars and trucks.

We will hear from Professor Susumu Noda, Director of Kyoto University Center of Excellence (COE) for
Photonic-Crystal Surface-Emitting Laser (PCSEL) They have a breakthrough approach to smart mobility and manufacturing in the context of Society 5.0. They are currently showcasing breakthrough photonic Lidar developments at the Automotive Campus
