SHAPING THE FUTURE OF OUR DIGITAL SOCIETY
We live and work in the exciting age of digital transformation. The University of Twente’s mission as a people-first university of technology places us in the crossfire of digital advancement and the disruption it can cause. As scientists and tech pioneers, our task is to drive digitalization. In close cooperation with all our stakeholders. Next to other institutes and faculties at the University of Twente, these include business & industry, government, NGO's and knowledge institutes. As a partner in regional, national and international ecosystems, we offer the knowledge, education and infrastructure for the development of successful solutions and products. In doing so, we focus on five themes: Data Science & AI, Smart Industry, eHealth, Robotics and Cyber security. We boost innovation by delivering scientific knowledge for real-life solutions that have societal and economic relevance. Our research focuses on natural, societal and industrial challenges, which serve as starting points for our way to work and have one common denominator: digital technologies. Our work contributes to solving three main challenges.
Our partners and stakeholders approach us with all kinds of questions. These include requests to develop a vision of current and future developments in digitalization in specific fields. Companies also approach us to future-proof their strategies, products and solutions. DSI acts as an innovation hub by connecting the knowledge and expertise within the University of Twente to the questions of the partner or stakeholder.
