Creating sustainable solutions for One Planet

In 2050 we are expected to live with 10 billion people on this planet. How can we make our food production and
supply sustainable to stop depleting the planet from her resources? Are we able to tackle diseases early on and keep ourselves and the planet healthy for the
future to come? Truth be told, we need groundbreaking sustainable technology to deal with these challenges for the planet and humanity. Do you want to create such
technology and build a better future?

Being part of OnePlanet means you will be working in a thrilling enterprising environment that develops mature sustainable technology. It will be about creating impact in a new team of engineers and medical, data and food technologists. In a multidisciplinary team of electronic engineers, biomedical engineers and data scientists, you will work on
innovations that are immediately applied and tested in field labs with our research and industrial partners.

  • Design of Experiment (DOE) development and use statistical tools to evaluate the effect of process treatment and optimized procedures.
  • Real-life validation of the prototypes, outside the lab environment.
  • Maintain a comprehensive understanding of leading technologies and products in the area of gas and fluidic sensors applications.
  • Provide input for new research topics.
