ETERNITY – “European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology”

Eternity is a European funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie project, with partners from Belgium, Portugal, Spain and The Netherlands. Each of the 14 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be trained to work in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with a new mindset tuned towards the inclusion of the three main elements of a risk-based approach into innovative design methods. For this inclusion to occur, each ESR will develop through their research the missing dedicated tools and techniques, and apply them to a representative set of medical devices under development. This hands-on training is supplemented with several scientific professional courses and an immersive training where the ESRs can fine-tune their skills for the Jobs of tomorrow, while addressing the societal challenges of the ETERNITY program. More detailed information on the purpose and structure of the project can be found under “About” at the top of the page.

  • One ETERNITY Later

    Three years ago, I started a new challenge in my career. To embark on an European research project was not something that was part of my plans throughout my academic studies. Being someone who likes to work on a project hands-on, I’ve always preferred practical activities over theoretical topics and for that reason, I assumed……

  • Enhancing Electromagnetic Disturbance Detection with Frequency-Selective SDR Technology

    IntroductionElectromagnetic disturbances (EMDs) have become an increasingly prevalent concern, particularly with the proliferation of electronic devices in our everyday lives. This blog delves into the findings of a recent research paper that assesses a cutting-edge, frequency-selective EMD detector using software-defined radio (SDR) technology, aimed at improving the accuracy and response time of EMD detection systems.……

  • Risk-Resilience-Based EMC Compliance Patterns for Medical Devices

    During the Safety Critical Systems Symposium SSS’24 in Bristol, UK, our research paper within ITN Eternity titled ‘Ensuring Safety and Effectiveness of Medical Devices in the Presence of Electromagnetic Disturbances through Unified EMC Assurance: A Compliance Pattern’ was presented. ESR14 would like to acknowledge Mike Parsons, Alex King, and Brian Jepson from the Safety Critical……
