CUCo is a key pillar of the alliance

The alliance TU/e, WUR, UU, UMC Utrecht challenges new generations of researchers and students to cooperate right across disciplines without setting prior limitations.

The institutions also challenge themselves by allowing researchers to take unconventional approaches. The partners thus want to enable shared scientific breakthroughs, such as in molecular life sciences and artificial intelligence, and to find solutions to challenges related to the social themes of health, food, energy and the circular society. The ambition is considerable: to solve that which appears to have no solution.
The four institutions cooperate in a cross-disciplinary way in those fields in which they complement each other. This strengthens each of the individual institutions as well as the partnership itself.
