Get to know MedTech Twente and join our system.


MedTech Twente is the innovation hub for the accelerated development of medical technology. In this cluster, businesses and health care institutions work together closely with researchers from the knowledge institutions to develop the health care innovations of tomorrow. Innovations are developed, validated and implemented in close collaboration between parties, facilitated and accelerated by supporting organizations such as Novel-T, OostNL, VitaalTwente, HIP, WTC and HealthValley. There is a reason why so many successful MedTech companies – including Demcon, Medspray, Micronit, Lipocoat and IAMFluidics – were established and have grown in Twente.

Working together on innovations that ensure better and more affordable care: that is the motivation of MedTech Twente’s partners. The collaboration between businesses, knowledge and health care institutions has resulted in a fertile ecosystem for innovations that make an invaluable contribution to the health care of the future.

The heart of the MedTech hub can be found in Enschede, at the Kennispark Twente innovation campus. In addition to numerous spin-off companies such as Demcon, Micronit, ECSens, Vycap, Lipocoat and Iamfluidics, the Techmed Centre and Nanolab of the University of Twente are also a stone’s throw away. Within the hub, there is also an intensive cooperation with the professorships
and courses of both Saxion and ROC Twente.

Health care institutions join forces in innovation

Under the banner of Vitaal Twente, the region’s two specialized clinical hospitals, Roessingh Research & Development and a number of other health care institutions collaborate on health care innovation projects. Within the Technologie Zorg Academie (TZA), participating health care institutions focus primarily on the awareness, adoption and acceptance of health care innovations.

Strengthening profile by joining forces

The MedTech Twente hub is strongly connected to the Health Innovation Park in Zwolle and the Healthvalley health care network, which is managed from the Netherlands. A roadmap is currently being developed to take MedTech in the east of the Netherlands to the next level as an international hub.
