Excessive alcohol consumption can not only lead to health problems, but is also the source of a great deal of nuisance, especially in a student city like Leuven. To make students and young people between 16 and 25 years old aware of this problem, the city of Leuven, KU Leuven, UZ Leuven and AB InBev are launching a "Smart Drinking Programme" in Health House. "Smart Drinking" is an experience programme that aims to give young people a sober view of the consequences of excessive alcohol consumption in nightlife.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neuromodulation therapy for movement disorder patients. DBS is not selective – it stimulates a broad population of neurons, causing side effects and sub-optimal therapy. Two novel technologies for selective stimulation rely on controlling temporal and spatial stimulation parameters. The DBS SELECT project, granted by EIT Health, will validate these complementary approaches in patients, leading to an improved therapy. A new education platform will better inform patients and clinicians, thus increasing market penetration. Coordination and implementation of this newly created education platform will be performed by Health House.
