Research Labs

Innovation begins with people. People who are open, passionate, curious, professional and connected. People who nourish dreams and ideas. It results in al lively community where knowledge and brilliant minds from inside and outside the campus actually meet and work together in order to do pioneering research on societal challenges and issues. In order to conduct this groundbreaking research, to attract outstanding scientific talent, and to train new generations of engineers, we have state-of-the-art research labs and facilities at our disposal, of which some are unique in the Netherlands, or even in the world.
