The vision of the study tour and research project Wahweenga relates to the ‘High Tech, Human Touch’ and ‘Shaping 2030’ visions of the University of Twente. Wahweenga embraces these visions towards the study tour to Canada and the United States. Both countries are leading in the global biomedical field. Therefore, this study tour aims to investigate state-of-the-art medical technologies. Existing questions concerning human enhancement, the role of high tech developments in a humane society, and how to keep essential human contact in a high tech society play a major role in the theme of perfection. To answer and discuss these questions, academic research concerning our future and current daily practice is performed. Essential in our vision is the ‘people first’ principle, which we connect to technical development in our research and during our visits to Canada and the United States.
