Eindhoven AI Systems Institute

Partnerships and alliances

In order to tackle the societal challenges, we translate the top-notch research of our scientists into responsible innovations with impact, in tight-knit collaborations with society and industry, other universities and our award-winning student teams.

Collaboration with industry

As a result we feature prominently in international rankings and indicators for collaboration with industry. We are also a breeding ground for successful startups and spin-offs in the field of sustainability, AI, and photonics.

Linking pin

A key role in further deepening our collaboration with industry and society is played by innovation SpaceThe GateEindhoven Engine and the other research institutes. We are the linking pin between our fundamental research and practical applications for the real world.

A perfect example of successful cooperation is the partnership between ASML and TU/e. In April of 2023 both parties signed a memorandum in which the university and the world’s largest supplier of photolithography machines agree to jointly develop a 10-year strategic research roadmap. ASML will also build a new research facility on the TU/e campus, including setting up a stateof-the-art clean room. Robert Jan Smits: “With the signing of this memorandum, TU/e and ASML seal their good cooperation of the past years and take it one step further. This facility will be a place where joint research is also emphatically carried out. Good for our researchers, but certainly also for our students, who thus already meet ASML researchers during their studies, from whom they can learn a lot.”
