Recently a consortium coordinated by Post Factum with ETRO-VUB as a subcontractor, could win a public tender for a framework contract for the period 2024-2027, in the field of e-health and biomedical engineering for the multiple partners in the health sector of 14 African countries. The framework contract is funded by ENABEL, the development agency of Belgium’s federal government. Projects will be executed at various level form national level to sector level down to institutional level in the field of biomedical engineering, digital strategies and solutions for the development of national e-health programs including the security of confidential data and capacity building.
With this framework contract, next to its already many rolled out international VLIR-UOS projects, the ETRO-department can further pursue its role in global societal responsibility and sustainability. It will reinforce it international presence in low and medium income countries in the broad domain of biomedical engineering and health technologies.
