Imec and KU Leuven collaborate on innovations for psychiatry

4 October 2019

Imec and the University Psychiatric Center of the KU Leuven have announced a collaboration on solutions for remotely tracking the mental state of patients. They plan to focus on innovations containing smart technology and algorithms, which should contribute to improving the comfort of living for the patients.


Some tools already exist but none of them have solid scientific research behind them. The Leuven combination can make this happen. Imec is an experienced development center for hardware and nano-electronics, data mining and data processing. The academic psychiatric center houses numerous medical experts and experience in psychiatric care.
