Robotics Centre of University of Twente officially in operation


A significant milestone at the University of Twente: the Robotics Centre officially started operating in January. The Robotics Centre is the number one place where students are taught and where partners such as government and semi-government bodies, companies, NGOs and knowledge institutions can work together on robotics solutions that improve our everyday life.

Steven van Roon, manager business & operations of the UT Robotics Centre, outlines the vision and ambition of the new centre. ‘Robotics has been a fast-growing sector for many years and the developments have gathered pace in recent times,’ says Van Roon. ‘There is a lot of demand from government and the business community for experts who develop robot innovations. That’s what we’re working on. So we bundle our expertise in this area and bring education, research and innovation together. The result is a unique multidisciplinary centre in which we are developing, among others, robots for medical care – including surgery – robots for industrial applications and robots that we can use in our everyday life. At UT we have everything necessary to prepare students and society as a whole for a future in this field and to develop the solutions that are desperately needed.’
