Slotevent: Virtual as the new Reality? How technology creates better healthcare

*English below*

E-mental health en het gebruik van immersieve technologie in de gezondheidszorg.
Dat zijn de onderzoeksonderwerpen waar we aan gewerkt hebben in de projecten Immersive Care en eMEN.
Allebei lopen ze op hun einde, dus zijn we erg enthousiast om onze verworven kennis te delen tijdens een joint event!

Wat kan je verwachten? Keynote sprekers drs. Felix Bolinski en dr. Inez Myin-Germeys, de projectresultaten over e-mental health en het gebruik van immersieve technologie (technologie die je de indruk geeft ondergedompeld te zijn in een andere omgeving) in de gezondheidszorg, demo’s van technologiebedrijven, prototypes en netwerksessies.

Het voormiddagprogramma zal in het Nederlands doorgaan (Immersive Care), terwijl het namiddagprogramma in het Engels zal verlopen (eMEN).
