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 28 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, as well as a (half-time) computer scientist.
