Innovation with innovative materials in your production process starts in Twente.
It is not only in production processes that technological development leads to major efficiency gains. Even when it comes to materials, development is rapid. These so-called ‘smart materials’ are becoming increasingly sustainable, smarter and more functional. Institutions and companies in Twente offer a great deal of knowledge about thermoplastic composites and textiles, among other things. Due to the rapid development in nanotechnology and photonics, the possibilities are unlimited. The Thermoplastic Composites Research Center conducts pioneering research into the application of thermoplastic composites in the aviation and automotive industries, among others.
