UCLouvain's hub for medical device+human research and innovation

Louvain Bionics is a research center of UCLouvain created in 2014 thanks to the legacy of Mr Pierre De Merre via the Foundation Louvain .

Louvain Bionics brings together about 30 researchers, the Members  engineers, doctors, physiotherapists, neuropsychologists, ethicists and philosophers to perform interdisciplinary, collaborative research and public outreach activities, building bridges between disciplines within UCLouvain and beyond. Its approach is based on a close connection with UCLouvain’s hospitals network and technological platforms (CREDEM and OpenHub), allowing for a strong interaction between clinicians, researchers, designers and users/patients.

The Coordination and Support staff includes a manager in charge of the strategic planning, implementation and funding of the research activities.
