INCITE newsletter December 2014



INCITE (Intelligent Catheters in
Advanced Systems for Interventions)

INCITE  is a research project focusing on the development of a technology platform that will enable advanced imaging, sensing (pressure, force, biomarker) and steering functions to be integrated into (sub)millimeter size in-body catheters and surgical instruments for emerging complex minimally invasive cardio-, neuro-, and peripheral vascular interventions.
On the new project website the full description of the project can be found:

INCITE meetings

This year there were three INCITE consortium meetings. In March, Philips Research organized the first meeting where the official kick-off of the project took place. In June and November the partners gathered in Tuusula (VTT) and Järfälla (Silex), respectively, to discuss the technical achievements and plan the upcoming period.


INCITE in the media

INCITE has also been present in the media. A number of partners issued press-releases and results were presented at PiezoMEMS in Japan. An overview of all dissemination activities can be found here.
