Pivot Park meets Brainport Eindhoven: Holst Centre

Content

We would like to invite you to the first ‘Pivot Park meets Brainport Eindhoven’ lunch meeting on the 11th of November at the Pivot Park. By organizing this meeting we want to connect companies at Pivot Park to the competences of the medtech industry in Brainport Eindhoven region. During this meeting, Holst Centre will give a presentation about their Organ-on-Chip proposition. Let’s explore what opportunities for new activities this offers!

An introduction of TNO/ Holst Centre
TNO/Holst Centre is currently developing a proposition aimed at the emerging Organ-on-Chip market, based on large-area (flexible) thin-to-thick film technology (T3FT)- to enable mass-manufacturing of Organ-on-Chip devices. From Holst Centre perspective, we are specifically thinking about enabling Organ-on-Chip functionalities by integration of flexible electronics in standard microtiter assays. At this moment, our focus is still on the technological challenges concerning large-area manufacturing of electronics and fluidic functionalities, whereas on the application side we are still very much involved in getting a clearer picture of the end-users requirements.

In the Brabant ecosystem, between the Eindhoven University Campus, Eindhoven High Tech Campus and the Pivot Park campus, we are looking forward to discussing, validate and sharpen our shared vision on the application domain and market needs, with a clear scope as well to look for opportunities to initiate collaboration in the Brabant ecosystem.

About Brainport Eindhoven
Brainport Eindhoven is home to groundbreaking innovations in the manufacturing industry. A large number of companies and organisations in Brainport Eindhoven are working on high-tech for pharma and biotech developments. This MedTech sector consists of a valuable mix of closely cooperating system OEMs, SME companies in R&D, in design and engineering, services, contract- and component manufacturers, scale- and startups, with close ties to knowledge and educational institutes such as ICMS at TU/e and Holst Centre, the region’s open innovation institute.

Next edition
On the 6th of December, we will organize a second edition of the ‘Pivot Park meets Brainport Eindhoven’. ICMS, the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems of the Eindhoven University of Technology, will share their story.

Hope to see you on the 11th of November!

Pivot Park Captains' Dinner

10 years ago, Pivot Park opened its doors to the world. Thanks to your commitment, support and confidence, we have been able to grow it into the successful and innovative biopharmaceutical campus it is today.

Now it’s time to celebrate!

We are therefore delighted to invite you – along with all your fellow CEOs at Pivot Park – to a special night out featuring inspiring art, a wonderful dinner and lots of opportunities to network and exchange ideas.

Erwin Wurm | Am I a House?

For the first time, the artist shows a cross-section of his work, from Narrow Furniture to One Minute Sculptures, within the walls of a historic building. Villa Constance, a former home that today houses Museum Jan Cunen, is not only a location but also part of the conversation. Because what exactly is a house?

#100YEARSPHARMAFUTURE

The development of medicines in Oss began one hundred years ago. It was then that the foundations were laid for what would become a flourishing pharmaceutical sector in the Netherlands, leading to groundbreaking discoveries such as insulin and the anti-conception pill.

Today, the entire chain is still represented in Oss, from early-stage research to the commercial scale production of medicines. Working in Oss, we focus on the health of people all over the world. Employees at dozens of companies large and small put their heart and soul into new medicines, products and services that will improve lives worldwide. Together, our strength lies in our combination of broad knowledge about the development of medicines and a thorough understanding of the requirements of high-quality production.

This shared past and common values stimulate strong bonds among everyone who works in pharmaceuticals in Oss. We build on qualities, expertise and networks that go back decades. And with a wide variety of pharmaceutical companies, suppliers and scientific institutions all located nearby, we offer an attractive business climate and an excellent basis for international collaboration.

We are proud to work together to create a better and healthier future for all, a collaboration that in turn fuels growing employment: today, most pharmaceutical jobs in the Netherlands are in Oss. Here we connect talent and companies and stimulate entrepreneurship, while our expert employees are our most important asset. Their drive ensures that Oss has an influence on health all over the world.

Pharma in Oss offers endless opportunities to startups and talent in a city and region that is a joy to live and work in.
