Research Support Network
The Research Support Network (RSN) is the TU/e knowledge network that supports researchers in developing and executing research projects during all project phases.
ABOUT RESEARCH SUPPORT @ TU/E
At the TU/e, we strongly believe that excellent research can only be executed in an organization with excellent support. For this reason, we have professional first line support in the departments and institutes, with a solid second line of experts in central services. This is called the Research Support Network (RSN).
Make sure always consult your first-line support team first when you have support questions during project acquisition, execution or aftercare. Please refer to the who-can-help-me section to find your point of contact.
