Together with a lot of impact creators we will explore new solutions for challenges on different themes: connected healthcare, energy transition, future industries and smart cities. We believe that we can achieve more impact in these challenges by working together and creating new connections.
CONNECTED HEALTHCARE

Healthcare of the future is based on cooperation between various parties involved (healthcare providers, insurers, service providers and of course patients). We’re taking a deep dive into the following topics:

Lifestyle interventions: how can innovations for lifestyle interventions become more successful, for example by approaching them more from a patient perspective? Are the currently devised methods to influence lifestyle still sufficient and can new methods be devised?

The right care in the right place: what is needed to work better together in the different phases of providing care to the patient? For example, how do we deal with sharing data in the chain?

How do you get a new method sustainably financed?

How can we scale up innovations faster and share knowledge better?

What will the hospital of tomorrow look like?

ENERGY TRANSITION

Around energy transition, we go into the depths around the following aspects:

A very small part of the energy that the sun radiates is enough to provide the whole world with sufficient energy. But how do we ensure that his energy can also be used after generation in the places where we need it? How do we convert the energy into forms that can be transported safely over long distances, without losing too much energy? Will the networks and pips that we now use for transporting energy still be usable in the long term?

10% of the energy in The Netherlands goes to cooling data centers. With the huge increase in the generation of data, this is only increasing more. How can we reduce the energy consumption of data centers? Or do we have to deal differently with saving data?

Much attention is paid to human behavior in the energy transition. To generate energy, save energy and for example to separate waste. Meanwhile, studies prove that there are much more efficient ways and new technologies under development to provide clean energy or make manual separation superfluous. Do we have to 'bother' the citizen with this?

FUTURE INDUSTRY

The central question in this theme is: What does the factory of the future looks like? And how (quick) do you move to this transformation?

Concerning automatization/robotization: How quick do you need to anticipate on new technologies? Leader vs follower. To share or borrow, how does sustainable financing works in this case? Collaboration in the chain where we are able to develop a strong proposition.

Concerning circular processes / your own energy storage: With the regard to climate change, becoming 100% self-sufficient, reuse of raw materials and waste.

With regard to data infrastructure in production environments and their protection against crime.

With regard to sustainable employability of employees, new work cultures vs work life balance, internationalization.

SMART CITIES

Urbanization and digitization are major drivers behind the economic and social developments of the 21st century. Mega-cities and metropolises catch the eye, but less densely populated areas with mid-sized cities as regional hubs serving surrounding villages and residential centers, have their own opportunities and challenges to shape their future.

European Universities want to take a proactive role in shaping that future by building on the rapid development of digital infrastructures across Europe and combining that with the strengths and values of people and communities in their respective regions. Bottom-up collaboration, challenge-based innovation and education seem to be the way forward in this approach.

Inspired by SDG 11 (Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable), University of Twente developed a smart regions agenda in which 4 thematic areas of work are proposed to get started:

Energy and Sustainability

Circular Economy

Resilient Communities

Transport and Mobility
