In the research by the University of Twente, technology and the role technology plays in society are key themes. Our research has social and economic impact, making the transfer of knowledge one of the most important tasks of our University. It means that developed knowledge receives an effective conversion to economic industriousness.

The focus of our research lies on five relevant areas that will substantially influence our society in the coming years:

  • safety and security
  • advanced materials
  • medical technology and devices
  • wireless and remote sensing
