Research & Development

Internal Research Portal

The research of the TechMed Centre is highly inter- and multidisciplinary and organized in different interfaculty research domains. The domains are responsible for outstanding research to ensure our global position as a frontrunner in multiple research areas. All domains perform both fundamental and applied research as translational research, including the ‘reverse translation’ of clinical insights and needs to the research labs. Researchers embedded in the 5 domains are working in all 5 faculties of the University of Twente. The adjunct and full professors are part of the Discipline Counsel. The total number of researchers affiliated with our TechMed Centre is about 650. It should be noted that any research group or individual researcher who is willing to contribute to the goals of the TechMed Centre is welcome to join and participate in all our (research) activities.

Strategic Programmes

As part of our Health Impact Portfolio, the TechMed Centre coordinates several strategic programs. 

In 2023, the Personalised eHealth Technology program was completed. You can find more information about it on this page.

In 2023/2024 new programs will be launched that focus on i) innovative technology for sustainable (healthcare) staffing and ii) planetary health and more sustainable healthcare by reducing the environmental footprint of the healthcare system. We have built in the flexibility to start new programs in 2025/2026 on relevant societal themes.
