Collaborate with TU/e?

If you want to collaborate successfully, then TU/e is the place to be. We are known for our excellent collaboration with industrial partners. Worldwide, we score high in the Times Higher education ranking when it comes to collaboration with industry. A position that we cherish and would like to develop further.

We have an active knowledge valorization policy, translating knowledge and research results into value for both the economy and society. Companies are essential partners in this.

Joint roadmaps

If you want to develop valuable and relevant technologies, you must be aligned with societal and industrial issues. By working with other (international) universities, research centers and technology institutes but also with companies.

We do a lot of joint research with industry, in which our research institutes: Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI), Eindhoven Institute for Renewable Energy Systems (EIRES), Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS) and the Institute for Photonic Integration (IPI) are leading. In joint research we often go that step further, developing, for example, innovation programs and R&D roadmaps with companies like ASML, Philips, DAF, KPN and Signify.

TU/e also joins forces with other universities and partners at home and abroad. In this way, we are able to enhance our impact for science, industry and society, conduct high-quality interdisciplinary research, act as a gateway for regional partners into the world-wide science networks and create an international climate for study and work.

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

Since SMEs are often confronted with short-term issues, we can engage SMEs, especially suppliers, in research via large industry. It can also work the other way around: we respond to innovation issues from SMEs with the knowledge we already have or translate this into applied research.
