Innovation Manager Health | imec

My mission is to participate in making this world a better place – within my capabilities – using digital health technology.

I preach the digital health gospel from a neutral local perspective involving all care providers, all industry partners and startups, all government and care organisations + the patient=citizen .

I use my competences and experience to stimulate the use of digital health technology.
I try to bridge the gap between the users (care-providers, institutions, patients) and the suppliers of (hardware/software) solutions in Healthcare taking account of the complex context of the (Belgian/European) healthcare system.

My main activities are:

– Innovation management
– Guiding applied research projects (imec.icon)
– Startup coaching and feedback (imec.istart)
– Implementing digital health through various channels (ehealth, mhealth, Vitalink, Digital Health Valley, Chroniccare…)


– Analysis
– Bridge the communication gap between business and IT.
– Communicate ( in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and any other means necessary )
– Empower and support improvements in healthcare through digital technology.
– Help startups and bright ideas become successful
– Straight clear feedback, no nonsense, no politics


– > 20 years in Healthcare projects and applications
– > 25 years in ICT projects containing development, maintenance and delivery
– Management experience on operational, functional, tactical and strategic levels.
– Portfolio management
– People management.
