An Interview: "Pushing Prevention from the Polder"

Sustainability in our healthcare system is the central topic for this year’s Innovation for Health conference. In anticipation of the conference, our exhibitor Schuttelaar & Partners spoke with Oscar Franco (Professor of Public Health at UMCU) and Koenraad Wiedhaup (CEO of Leyden Labs). Both are speakers at Innovation for Health this year and have devoted their professional careers to prevention, a key aspect of a future proof health care system with our aging population. The life science system is characterized by collaboration: academic innovations spill over to commercial success. Oscar and Koenraad emphasize: “this is also very much true for prevention, and the Dutch are well-positioned to drive this change”. Read the full interview here.

An Interview: "Sustainable Design Meets Life Sciences"

The greatest health risk for the future is climate change. That’s why, also within the Dutch life sciences community, reducing CO2 emissions is a priority. Prof. dr. Conny Bakker (TU Delft) is an expert in the science behind reducing the climate impact of all kinds of products and designing for sustainability. In her research group, Jason LaRoche (Johnson & Johnson) studies the climate impact of clinical trials and how best to reduce it. In anticipation for Innovation for Health 2024, our exhibitor Schuttelaar & Partners had a conversation on the why and how of reducing emissions in our sector. Read the full interview here.
