The aim of the University of Twente is to provide world-class research and education and to make a difference with our knowledge and solutions. In order to accomplish this, we need to pursue an active talent policy to attract, develop and retain talented staff. And talented people, again, attract other talented people. In addition, it is of great importance that our current human resources are excellent so they are able to fulfill this ambition. This means that our staff are ambitious, talented and enterprising. Outstanding performance and achievements based on realistic agreements for top talents are necessary for the UT to realize its high ambitions. Mobility and a flexible, dynamic organization are a prerequisite to attract these talents and allow them to function well.
