John Koivukangas: The Oulu neuronavigation project -- and beyond

Abstract: The Oulu Neuronavigation Project is presented as a recent case of work in the field of clinically oriented biomedical engineering during the past 15 years. The concept of the Innovative Clinic is presented as a way to identify and resolve issues related to technology transfer. In this model, innovations are identified, scientifically researched and transferred to industry, but the model also accomodates clinical implementation and technological assessment, resulting in new services and even products.
