European HealthTech innovation center
"ENGINEERING INNOVATIONS THAT IMPROVE HEALTHCARE"
European HealthTech Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art R&D center
of the Silesian University of Technology.
Our mission and purpose is to create a platform for integration of R&D capacities and capabilities of ultra-modern laboratories, scientific potential of research teams of the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the Silesian University of Technology with business entities and other R&D units operating in the healthcare sector.
Our objectives are:
“The Silesian University of Technology is constantly responding to the changing needs of society by combining science and practice of continuous activities for the benefit of the society. EHTIC is a kind of a forge of solutions to the most important health challenges, such as the aging society. We develop and implement projects that will both ease the burden on the health care system and contribute to better treatment of patients. It is here that both Polish and foreign companies find research facilities for the development of their ideas in the field of medicine, or health in its broad concept.”
Designed as an intelligent and energy-efficient edifice with a compact structure and aesthetics, it is 58.5m long, 23.5m wide and 18m high. The total area of the building is over 4,000m2 and its volume is about 22,000m3. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on May 20, 2020 and the construction of the facilities has been completed in September 2021.
EHTIC infrastructure is unique in Central and Eastern Europe. It consists of several ultramodern laboratories equipped with the world-class technology, hardware and software, able to design and develop breakthrough innovations to be implemented in medicine and healthcare industry, especially in the areas such as bioinformatics, bioelectronics, biomechanics and biomaterials.
