Mimics Innovation Awards - Winners 2013

Leuven, Belgium – Materialise is proud to announce the winners of the Mimics Innovation Awards. Through the years, the Suite has become an industry standard for processing and editing anatomical data from CT and MRI scans. Incorporating anatomical data is an important component in evidence-based R&D but funding is not always available. In order to ensure that this important research remains possible, Materialise offers 16,000 euros per year to the most innovative uses of the Mimics Innovation Suite

So, these are the winners of the 2013 edition of the Mimics Innovation Awards:
