19-10-2013, Shenyang: Signing the Memorandum of Understanding between TU/e, BMIE and He Shi. 24-03-2014, Beijing: Signing the collaboration between CN (prof. Wei He) and NL (prof. Bart Romeny), witnessed by Dutch Minister Jet Bussemaker.

The Sino-Euro Vision & Vision Institute is a collaborative institute between the partners Eindhoven University of Technology and the Chinese partners Northeastern University and He Shi Eye Care System, both in Shenyang, China, for the prevention of blindness. Associated partners are University Eye Clinic Maastricht, i-Optics Inc., and Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy & Sleep Center in the Netherlands.

The Institute comprises three research labs:

The three programs are highly interconnected. The vision-inspired computational model generates innovative algorithms for retinal computer-aided diagnosis, for complex 3D tractography analysis, and analysis of 3D OCT vasculature; the retinal screening study generates a huge database for better statistics and algorithm validation, the clinical pathway studies aim at bringing tractography into clinical application, preventing blindness as neursurgical accident.
