Scouting & Grants
Enabling unique research with unique equipment
IDEE started scouting & grants in 2012 to address the following two matters:
Modern researchers tend to search for expertise through the internet and are not aware of the facilities within their organizations. A lot of great ideas exist, but the way of fund-raising has changed: less basic funding and more third party funding.
Our scouts can meet personally to find out if IDEE can be of value for your research. They can also arrange a tour through IDEE for your entire department to get to know each other. Our scouts also have a lot of experience in giving dedicated presentations about IDEE and related technology at staff meetings, annual symposia or conferences / congresses.
Our scouts have an academic background and can support you with brainstorming and setting–up new research projects that require unique technology. They dispose of an extensive network of partners for missing competencies. Our scouts support in writing grant proposals and are familiar with several subsidiaries, such as STW, NWO, Horizon 2020, Interreg, SWOL and many more.
WearIT4Health stems from a former project from Interreg IVA Top Technology Cluster (TTC) having the objective to create new collaborations between research institutions and SMEs, late 2014.
"To bring back the patient at the heart of the health care system, and guarantee an optimal follow-up of the patient during his hospitalization, this is the challenge of wearIT4health.
The objective of the WearIT4Health project is the creation of a portable multi-sensor monitoring device that is comfortable for hospitalised patients and compatible with the IT infrastructure of hospitals in the Euregio Meuse-Rhin.
The project is based on a solid consortium bringing together actors from different regions of the Euregio Meuse-Rhin; their knowledge and know-how are high level and complementary. The monitoring device that will be developed will record vital medical data continuously and analyse it to help the health care team make the most appropriate decision for the patient. The final TRL of the monitoring device will be TRL 5 level or beginning of TRL 6 level.
Come and discover an ambitious project, supported by the Interreg VA Euregio Meuse-Rhine Cooperation Programme, the Walloon Region, The Provincie Limburg of Belgium, the Provincie Limburg of the Netherlands, and all of the project partners."

Smarter measurement and more efficient collection of data for better health care.
- Health-care professionals spend so much time measuring and recording that they are left with less and less time to provide the actual care.
- Measurement data vanishes into the archives of health-care institutions and insurance companies without clients being able to see it or take any action.
- Entrepreneurs design innovative products and processes to take measurements in health care in smarter ways in order to improve the quality of health care, yet are not easily afforded opportunities to test and improve their ideas in practice.
- Clients and citizens increasingly want to monitor their own health and well-being in pursuit of improving or maintaining their health but do not know how to do this in the best and most reliable way.
There has to be a different way, a better way, of doing this!
LIME (Limburg Meet, or Limburg Measures) exists to encourage the creation, further development, and use of innovative measuring products and instruments in health care. And to ensure smart measurement occurs, preferably as much as possible by the clients themselves. This improves the quality of care provided and ensures that it stays affordable and accessible.
