Partnering opportunity

Looking for medical hydrogel (conductive and adhesive) expertise.


A Dutch SME developing a novel Electroencephalography (EEG) based medical device is looking for outstanding expertise on medical hydrogel that is both highly conductive as well as adhesive. It is an important requirement that the hydrogel should be useable in places where the patient has hair (on the head). A specialised healthcare company active in hydrogel design and manufacturing with technical knowledge of hydrogels is sought, for technical cooperation.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Specialized knowledge of conductive and adhesive hydrogels in relation to medical patches (to measure brain activity) is sought. Detailed knowledge on hydrogels design, testing/measurement techniques for validation, and hydrogel manufacturing is requested. The manufacturer needs to have ISO 13485 certification.

Partner sought

A specialised healthcare company active in medical hydrogel design and manufacturing (with ISO 13485 certification) with technical knowledge on design of hydrogels is sought, for technical cooperation.


This Dutch SME has a wide experience in both development and market entry of new medical products. In the past this company has worked with both research (Medical Universities) and investors in both business development and assessing market possibilities of new products. The company is now developing a novel EEG (brain activity) based medical monitoring device and is looking for outstanding expertise on medical hydrogel design and manufacturing. A disposable "peel-stick" type of EEG Electrode patch design to measure brain activity on patients will be part of the monitoring device. This disposable "peel-stick" patch will include 3 pre-gelled electrodes, of which one of the electrodes is placed in a location where the patient can have hair (on the head). The patch needs to be disposable to ensure signal quality and prevent cross-contamination from patient to patient. Cooperation is offered in the framework of a technical cooperation agreement.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
