Utrecht – Eindhoven alliance
Together with University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht), Utrecht University is striving to promote innovation in research, education and patient care by improving the alignment of scientific research and education with practical and feasible applications in healthcare.
This goal has been given shape by the strategic alliance that was established between Utrecht University, UMC Utrecht and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2011. These institutions are strengthening their existing ties in research, education and knowledge valorisation and building on areas where they complement each other's strengths.
The partnership focuses on three research areas:
- Regenerative medicine & stem cells
- Medical imaging
- Sustainable energy
The joint Master's programme in Regenerative Medicine and Technology combines biomedical science with technology.
