Research with impact
Issues in society form the basis of our applied research. We connect students with researchers and experts in the professional field. 
Together we work on sustainable solutions for social issues.  Real solutions, that let businesses and organisations take the next step and so shape our future together. Our region is the place we are proud of and feel connected with. Although we also look beyond our national borders. We stimulate the entrepreneurship of our students and put knowledge and innovative power into practice. Together with our partners and the business community, we are strengthening our region.

At Saxion, students learn how their field of study is influenced by innovations and how they can apply technology to achieve the best results. Our research distinguishes itself by focusing on the interaction between man and technology. Saxion's approach ties in well with the strong growth of the high-tech manufacturing industry, in which the eastern part of the Netherlands is taking a leading role.

These solutions have a high impact on people and their living environment; life becomes easier, more agreeable, more affordable, more sustainable.
