Confidential Advisors for inappropriate behaviour and scientific integrity

The TU/e has several confidential advisors. They support individual reporters (staff and students) who are confronted with undesirable behaviour, irregularities or issues of scientific integrity. The confidential advisors have an independent position within the TU/e.

TU/e has appointed an Ombudsman for staff who contributes to a safe working environment and to the learning ability of the organization, by advising on the basis of reports and/or serious signals about (structural) bottlenecks in procedures and regulations.



Employee wellbeing is a comprehensive concept. There are several factors present in any work environment that can affect employee wellbeing. In addition, there are (external) personal factors that can influence a person's work performance.

TU/e offers its employees and students a number of general facilities. With these, TU/e hopes to provide a pleasant working and living environment. An environment in which you feel comfortable and at ease, with a good balance between working, learning and leisure.




On this webpage you will find a collection of initiatives that demonstrate how we keep Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) high on our agenda. In addition to rolling out relevant policies, each year we award a fund to the best initiatives. You will also find links to relevant TU/e news items.
