Health Tech in East Flanders
The growing healthcare-economy of East Flanders combines scientific research and medical innovation. A close cooperation between our many healthcare institutions, internationally renowned knowledge centres, healthcare professionals and entrepreneurs has ensured we look forever forward.
Biotech, medical and digital technologies have led healthcare into an era of true innovation, and Ghent has turned itself into a hotspot for the industry. The innovations don’t stop in Ghent. Aalst has become the place to build the healthcare of tomorrow through its living lab. Here, entrepreneurs have the opportunity to test their new technologies in real applications. In Melle, 3500 surgeons gather annually in the training centre of ORSI Academy to attend training and lectures in the newest developments of robotic surgery.
