Stakeholders Programme

Stakeholders Programme

Programme details and Letter of Intent

Holozcan's approach is to propose to the Community of Users a possibility to join our Stakeholders' Programme. The goal is to have a focus group to (i) share selected issues for discussion, and (ii) engage in individual dialogues to understand the specific needs from each representative of the selected application areas, based on pre-identified scenarios. Each Stakeholder has to sign a Letter of Intent to join.

Stakeholder’s Horizon

Dr. Stef Stienstra is CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear)-subject matter Expert for the Dutch Armed Forces, and lecturer at the NATO School in Oberammergau and the NATO Joint CBRN-defense Centre of Excellence. He is also Visiting Professor at the University of Rome Tor Vergata for their CBRN MSc curriculum.

He is a specialist in biological monitoring, detection/triggering, identification and diagnosis in victims of air-borne biological threats. Dr. Stienstra thinks, with his ample experience with flow-cytometry, that:

“the HoloZcan holographic microscopy and imaging technology is promising for detection of potential biological threats or attacks. The instrument enables to detect, with mature machine learning and artificial intelligence software, the abnormalities in the ambient air in an efficient and cost-effective way. With the HoloZcan database of ‘fingerprints’, the potential threatful pathogen can be identified immediately after the flow through the instrument”.

Dr Stef Stienstra contributes with critical ideas to the HoloZcan Stakeholders group.

Mariana Gaboriau is a specialist in Environmental Studies, Ecology and Evolution. She contributes to HoloZcan Stakeholder groups: # Industrial detection needs and # Gender / Women in Science. About the project she says:

“HoloZcan is a promising interdisciplinary project that could potentially improve the response management system for first responders in emergency situations. Bridging engineering and biology, the development of this technology would be an exciting step in the field of CBRN detection.”

Mariana Gaboriau is a Field Application Scientist at Bertin Technologies, France.

Elif Sürer is an academic and computer engineer developing serious games and augmented/virtual/mixed reality technologies for the CBRNe and disaster management. She contributes to HoloZcan stakeholder groups: # Industrial detection needs and # Gender / Women in Science.

“HoloZcan is an interdisciplinary project merging the power of deep learning with the biology domain to provide a unique technology for the practitioners in CBRNe. The provided framework, algorithms, and data will enhance the current emergency management strategies’ classification, response, and detection capabilities.”

Elif Sürer, Associate Professor at the Middle East Technical University’s (METU) Multimedia Informatics program, Director at the METU Entrepreneurship Research Center, and Mentor at the METU Design Factory. Currently, she is the METU Principal Investigator of the H2020 European Network of CBRN Training Centers (eNOTICE) project.

Nataliya Nakonechna is a high-level specialist in identification of technologies for commercialization, and a space technologies broker. She contributes to HoloZcan stakeholder groups: # Industrial detection needs, and # Gender / Women in Science.

About the project she says:

HoloZcan is a unique project, which has numerous fields of application. I would definitely recommend considering and studying possibilities of its application in the space conditions, especially within space missions and human life support in space.
