Universiteit Twente

The University of Twente (UTWENTE) is a multicultural community of talented, ambitious people that offers students, scientists and educators from around the world the best possible conditions.

High Tech Human Touch

We believe technology and people have a leading role to play in providing solutions for complex societal challenges worldwide. Central to our vision is our High Tech Human Touch philosophy, in which we fuse natural science, data-science, biology and engineering with social and behavioural science while maintaining a relentless focus on societal impact. With this unique cross-disciplinary approach and excellence in scientific disciplines, our scientists, teachers and students work every day on our scientific themes.

World-class Research Institutes

Our multicultural community of talented, ambitious students, scientists and educators have - together with our business and government partners - access to the best possible conditions. The campus has powerful research institutes that focus on nanotechnology, ICT, biomedical technology and technical medicine, governance & behavioural sciences, engineering and geo-information sciences and earth observation.

From Knowledge to Spinoff

Our leading institutes combine scientific excellence with a keen eye for commercial knowledge valorisation and social applications. They are successful in generating spin-off businesses. Up to now, this has yielded more than a thousand spin-offs that are often very successful, such as DEMCOM, ClearFlightSolutions and SciSports.

In APRICOT our tasks are to design and test an anchoring system of the implant to the bone, develop an implantation strategy and design and test specialised surgical instruments to support the implantation process.
