Deam receives innovation award from Mona Keijzer, state secretary for economic affairs
On 4 October, the no. 1 Eurostars Projects of the past 3 years were presented with an innovation award during the Innovation Expo 2018 in Rotterdam. DEAM and its project partners have received this Innovation Award for the Eurostars Mariana project.
This project is a European collaboration between businesses and knowledge institutions: Sintef and Ceetron from Norway, University of Cork and Smart Electronics Ltd from Ireland and TUDelft from the Netherlands.
The Mariana team is developing an advanced system for taking biopsy samples through the lungs from the deepest and most difficult to reach regions, at the exact location where an X-ray indicates abnormal activity.
