The High Tech Systems Center (HTSC) opens its doors on the TU/e campus this afternoon. The aim of the centre is to bundle all expertise in the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and control technolog.
This should contribute to new fundamental and applied research at the TU/e. Out of the industry there is much demand for researchers who are familiar with all the technical areas.
For the moment the HTSC will collaborate with nearby businesses, says a spokesman for the centre. ‘We especially listen to the vision of companies and convert that vision in innovation.’ Examples include robots to take over care tasks and improved printers.
According to the TU/e the research centre has the ambition to work together with international companies.
Through the use of a so-called impulse programme, where ‘science for the industry’ is the starting point, the centre tries to involve as much as possible researchers. In this TU/e plays a role: for each promotion place which is paid by the University, companies will fund one too.
