With practice-oriented research THUAS works on solutions to these and many other issues, like digital security, inclusive education or the use of AI and data.

In our research, we work alongside partners in the field: companies, social organisations, education and professional practices. The results of our research are newfound knowledge, products or services, which are always instantly applicable and have high impact.


We co-create our research with local, regional and (inter)national partners and involve our partners at every stage of our research. Together, we look at the questions and the best approach to those questions. We also work together when sharing the results. This way, the results of our research reach society and professional practice quickly and appropriately.

In our knowledge agenda, you can read how we want to create impact in our research, education and society.
