Lucien Engelen

@Radboudumc founding director @REshape Center health(care) innovation/Faculty @ExponentialMed Silicon Valley & @singularityuNL / speaker

It is at the intersection of technology and patient empowerment, which is where Lucien Engelen (1962), director of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre REshape Center and advisor to the Board of Directors feels most at home. The two worlds combined into the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and Singularity University in Silicon Valley & the Netherlands and in the Nordics he’s modus operandi is always challenging, sometimes provocative but always techno-realistic. The objective is to keep Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre at the forefront of innovation and to have a soft landing in the future meanwhile creating a sustainable global health(care) for all.

With a doubling of healthcare demand over the next decade and an even declining budget there is room for improvement. We need all the brainpower and passion to take care of our communities in good health. Lucien’s talk at TNW Conference will take you on a tour of opportunities, challenges and pitfalls to crush your head around. Encouraging others to come over and help the health(care) industry with their knowledge, because it’s badly needed.
