    We just got back from Open Doors Day at High Tech Campus Eindhoven – part of Dutch Technology Week – which for us included our first tour of a Philips building on High Tech Campus, the giant research park in Eindhoven.

    DISPATCHES GOT AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE LATEST PHILIPS TECH FOR TARGETED TREATMENT OF PANCREATIC CANCER.

    The Amsterdam-based electronics company long ago shifted from consumer products toward healthcare equipment and lighting. Recently, Philips Lighting re-branded itself as Signify. Philips Healthcare is the sole remaining flag.

    At open doors day, we saw the latest diagnostic and clinical equipment, including advances in molecular pathology and new devices such as GPS-supported target therapy that allows physicians to guide microscopic ultrasound sensors.

    What we found most interesting is the Philips technology meant to allow patients to see crucial treatment data including dashboards and data visualization tools. Philips equipment retrieves historical data from the providers’ clinical database to provide analysis of similar patients to assist oncologists with treatment decisions.

    The idea is analytical comparisons and more personalized care are better … the opposite of the clinical approach in the United States, which is designed to cut the patient out of the information loop.

    This is a company that not only is hiring like crazy, it’s a company that spins out a lot of companies including semiconductor giant ASML and 3-D printing innovator Shapeways. So you might come to Eindhoven for a job and end up in a startup that conquers the world.

    Here are some of the most interesting jobs just posted … and there are LOT of new jobs on the careers website – we counted more than 2,000 openings – 117 jobs just in engineering – from China to Europe to South Africa to South America.
