Our research community covers the entire range of disciplines related to the built environment. By bringing multiple perspectives to the table and meaningly connecting these, we are able to contribute to innovative solutions for complex societal issues.
By playing an active role in our academic network and by committing to Open Science principles, we contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
We have world class experimental facilities, such as a fully equipped building physics, materials and structures laboratories, a largescale 3D Concrete Printer and Atmospheric Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel, as well as digital twinning and virtual reality facilities. This allows us to do laboratory experimental research from microscopic level to full-scale, from controlled laboratory conditions to field studies involving users, and everything in between.
In collaboration with the TU/e institutes EAISI and EIRES we develop Key Enabling Technologies in the field of artificial intelligence and the energy transition.
