Here in an Open Innovation setting at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, we’ve seen some good proof points of how we can make use of each other’s competencies and expertise. For example our co-creation activities with Holst Centre, working on technologies for wireless autonomous sensors and flexible electronics, and with the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine (CTMM), striving to reduce the impact of cancer as well as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, infectious and autoimmune diseases. In 2011, we joined forces with Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) creating an advanced Imaging Facility on the Campus to intensify research on medical imaging. Also we have a team of scientists from FOM, working on advanced optical technologies embedded in our organization.
This year, we’ll celebrate a century of impactful innovations from Philips Research. I look forward to the next one hundred years of creative ideas and technology breakthroughs, and the unique opportunity that we have to work together to turn these ideas and breakthroughs into innovations that will truly matter to billions of people around the world.
After all, you know what they say – “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
