Collaborations

Within ID, the DI group collaborates with the DQI, UCE and BPD groups by joint coaching of Bachelor's, Master's and PhD projects, and by sharing laboratories, workshop facilities and computer infrastructures. Research cooperation also exists with various TU/e groups, with the European Design Center (EDC) and the Máxima Medical Center (MMC). Until 2006 the research within the DI group was organized under the banner of the JFS national research school1, which enabled cooperation, both locally and nationally, with other groups in the fields of interest.
