Shaping 2030

Solar cells and wind energy, big data or simply smartphones - today it's impossible to imagine a world without these technologies. Imagine: where will we be in 10 years?

This year the University of Twente is working on its new strategy for 2030. In our ever-changing world we are facing new challenges everyday - but how can we tackle the challenges of the future?

What should the University of Twente change, improve or focus on during the next ten years?
