Sustainability enjoys an important position in the research conducted at TU/e. There are three specific areas on which TU/e focuses its attention: Energy, Smart Mobility and Health. As an experimental garden for sustainable innovation, TU/e uses its campus for research (‘Living Labs’) in the area of sustainability.
