“It does not stop with accommodation; it is about connecting as well”
The R&D Hotel facilitates the cooperation between researchers and entrepreneurs with a focus on Food & Health, Medical Technology, Pharma and eHealth. Designed to meet the needs of people who are on the move and need a flexible environment. Workspaces for preparations, meetings and communication.
Get inspired by the stimulating open environment of the general flex-desk area where a balance between working and meeting takes physical form. Further down this large open office, the flex-desks are more sheltered from sound and movement. It is also possible to book office space. Ideal for small project groups.
The Healthy Ageing cluster on the campus offerts with meanly the Lifelines project an important link from society to science. With the created knowledge in ageing research, as in ERIBA (eg "Center for Systems Medicine & Genetics" (systems biology (molecular) genetics, mass-spectrometry, bio-informatics) ), is reinforced. However, the missing link in here is a physical place where the social and economic spin-offs are offered. This is the reason for building a Competence Center for Personalized Health(y Ageing); A building that symbolizes the practical application of Healthy Ageing in society. The strength of the concept is that testing of effectiveness and efficiency of products takes place in the same building as where it is being sold.

The UMCG becomes one of four cancer treatment locations in the Netherlands with a proton therapy center. The ministry for public health, wellbeing and sports made the decision to add the proton therapy center. As it is relatively new in comparison to other radiations, yet with many advantages such as lower risk for damage on healthy tissue, the UMCG expects to treat an estimated 600 patients a year with this kind of therapy.
“One of the advantages of this therapy is the relatively low societal costs, due to the fact that patients will be able to be independent for a longer period of time without being reliant on additional care”, says Hans Langendijk, head of the department for radiotherapy. The center will approximately cost €80 Mio. and will be located on the Healthy Ageing Campus on the other side of the ERIBA institute. The UMCG plans to start building in 2014 and hopes to treat first patients by 2017.
Simulation Education has all sorts of advantages. It is not only more pleasant for patients, it is also better for them as they do not become worn out by students and staff members practising on them. Doctors who practise in a skills centre also feel more confident. This makes the Wenckebach Skills Center an important link in the quality and safety policy chain.
Simulation-based training is also particularly suitable for groups. An example is a teaching session for a team about working under stress. Thus, a skills centre contributes to more efficient training and better cure and care.
The UMCG has had a highly advanced skills centre for years. In 2008, a new skills centre opened. It is a complete hospital in miniature. The operating theatres, for instance, have the same equipment as the operating theatres in the UMCG itself and there are similar scrub rooms. That way, participants can learn how to work under sterile conditions.
Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary
In the Wenckebach Skills Center, we can concentrate on skills training for all disciplines in the clinical setting. The Skills Center intends to contribute to the development of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary training. After all, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary cooperation is the order of the day in patient care. The success of many interventions and procedures depends on good teamwork.
The trainers and lecturers of each of the sections decide for themselves which training they will offer and how. Experienced lecturers or consultants at the School of Nursing and Health or the Postgraduate School of Medicine support them in this. In addition, the UMCG supports working with third parties such as other hospitals and the medical industry. The Skills Center has experienced programme directors who will be glad to advise you about content in the development of skills training.

First and foremost, the Wenckebach Skills Center is a facility – your wishes and ideas are paramount. A great deal is possible – the Skills Center has its own auditorium where 40 people can track interventions and training programmes elsewhere in the building.
Because the Center has state-of-the-art internet facilities, it is also possible to closely follow operations somewhere else in the world. Because the Wenckebach Skills Center also has ordinary patient rooms, it is very suitable for competence-based assessment. In addition, each floor has an area where interventions can be recorded and reviewed and discussed straightaway.
