Our fast-changing society demands new knowledge and innovation. The pace at which changes are occurring is leading to a restructuring of the knowledge infrastructure. There is a demand for research partners who are flexible and who are positioned close to society and the market. This is where higher professional education comes in.
In the reporting year, we focused our research on issues that have arisen in professional practice. These were by definition multidisciplinary, socially relevant issues, whereby the context of the brief was also the subject of research. Our research therefore develops solutions that can immediately be tested and are directly applicable in practice. The results of this research were incorporated into our institution’s education in 2011, thus keeping our education up to date.
