PimBio partner in €3.16M EU Interreg project TTD
Cardiovascular diseases come with major personal and societal implications. Within the Interreg Flanders- The Netherlands project Trans Tech Diagnostics (TTD) this public-private consortium of Maastricht University (CARIM, lead partner), University Hasselt (BIOMED), VITO and TSG Innoteq focuses on the development of innovative diagnostic alternatives that allow for better assessment of risks to develop cardiovascular diseases.
Main goal of our TTD research and development project is creating innovative options for better cardiovascular diagnostics, increasing the individual quality of life, especially for elderly. Furthermore, TTD provides an open innovation network for public-private collaboration to create the cardiovascular health solutions for the future. PimBio has been invited by TTD consortium to support industrial research and to help with realization of the intended demonstrator. On the basis of the complementarity in expertise, technological objectives and options for (more) future cooperation, PimBio provides good opportunities for cooperation in which all partners can benefit from the cooperation.
Trans Tech Diagnostics is an Interreg V project of the border region Flanders – the Netherlands and receives financial support as part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF, €1,580,000), regional governments and TTD partners (€1,580,000; total project budget €3,160,000).

The Laboratory of the Innovative Testing Research Group of HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht in collaboration with partners has obtained SIA RAAK-PRO funding for development, optimization and implementation of two innovative intestinal in vitro models for evaluation of the safety and efficacy of food ingredients. PimBio B.V. has developed a microfluidic device for hydrogel-based 3D cell culture for the consortium to create a ‘gut-on-a-chip’ in vitro model.
