ITE shall be characterised by well-developed research collaborations with the business sector and the public sector. Through our joint competences we can be an attractive partner and deal with projects where the whole range is treated, from enabling technologies – like low-power technologies and semiconductor sensors – to value-adding IT use, considering user aspects. In between, system and application aspects are treated, that is intelligent algorithms, application-specific computer architectures and efficient interconnection technologies.

Our strategy is to focus on a limited number of application areas in which we get recognised by industry and society as a key player and natural cooperation partner. Currently, the selected application areas are: health technology, traffic and transport systems, process industry, high-performance signal processing applications, experience industry, together with the (non-application) area of ground breaking electronics.
