Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is located in a highly industrialized region, known as ‘Brainport’. This region is internationally recognized as a top technology area with a special focus on the integration of design and technology. TU/e educates a new type of academic engineers who should combine insights into different fields of knowledge, as integrators of visions and ‘opportunity finders’. In essence they should be the designers of intelligent systems, products and related services, addressing aspects such as adaptive behaviour, context awareness and highly dynamic interaction. These systems meet the needs of today’s users or, even better, offer new, breakthrough possibilities leading to societal transformations. Research was gradually built up from 2002 onwards, resulting in four well established research groups integrating their expertise. The Department has set up a valuable international network, with staff and students originating from more than 25 different nationalities worldwide, initiating knowledge sharing in multi-stakeholder open innovation projects.
