BI/OND wins Accenture Innovation Awards 2018 for Health
- Tuesday, 13 November 2018
TU Delft start-up BI/OND is the winner of the Accenture Innovation Awards 2018 in the Health category.
According to the Jury:
"This year’s winner has proven that science can indeed make a difference. They are truly a learning organization. Yet as scientists, they risk staying unsung heroes. Winning today provides them with the opportunity to realize their full potential and develop into a business, making their dreams come true."
It has been a challenging journey for BI/OND. From the top 50 innovation nomination, to the Summer Nights where 25 companies were selected, through the Semi-Finals (top 10), and all the way up to the Finals (top 5), the winners of the Accenture Innovation Awards 2018 (AIA18) were finally announced on November 2nd.
The AIA18 Innovation Journey focused on 8 global themes, tackling both local and global issues. DeFabrique, the Innovation Summit’s scenery, was packed with more than 2,500 visitors from various industries and backgrounds with one thing in common: the desire to disrupt the current status quo. The jury spent hours deliberating who should be the next leading innovator of their theme, culminating in the announcement of the winners.

Micro electronics colloquium, Thursday March 28, 15.30 EEMCS Restaurantzaal
The XG- “Next Generation Sensing and Communication” research theme is proud to announce a colloquium devoted to the design and development of advanced data converters based on conventional (delta-sigma) as well as unconventional (built-in signal-processing) techniques. The main application of such data converters is in the transceivers, where they enable the reception of multi-channel and multi-standard signals. We are very honoured, to have two leading scientist presenting their work - namely; Prof. Nan Sun , University of Texas and Muhammed Bolatkale, NXP/TU Delft
