We aim to be leading in the responsible and effective development and implementation of technology for industry and society and in addressing the grand societal challenges. Therefore, valorization is of utmost importance to us. Valorization activities are undertaken for stakeholders such as policy makers, the industry, organizations of professionals, the general public, students and life-long learners. Valorization – working with and for our stakeholders – is in our DNA, as witnessed by the fact that researchers of all ranks work with companies and societal organisations, and by the large portfolio of projects we perform in collaboration with non-academic partners.
In particular, we want to be leading for the following research themes:
Humans and Technology
We understand people, their needs and wishes, their values and capabilities. We investigate how humans relate to technology and vice versa.
Logistics and its interfaces
We analyze and optimize supply chain functions from acquisition of raw materials to the satisfaction of consumer demands.
We research, develop and engineer methodologies for rewarding circular economies, supply chains, and behavior of firms and individuals.
Value of Big Data
We investigate, develop, and implement artificially intelligent systems to support and enrich human decision making and innovation.
Project Development Office
Our Project Development Office supports the acquisition of large projects, in particular for the research themes mentioned above.
