This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 875504

University of Twente

The University of Twente (UT, is a young, 
entrepreneurial research university. Founded in 1961 in Enschede, the Netherlands, 
the UT stands for high tech with a human touch. At the UT 3,200 scientists and 
professionals conduct pioneering research and offer relevant, innovative and 
inspiring education to 10,000 students. In the research, the UT focuses on 
nanotechnology, information technology, biomedical technology and technical medicine, governance, 
behavioural sciences and geo-information science and earth observation. UT’s research is highly regarded at 
national and international levels, and is accommodated within world leading research institutes. The research 
institutes combine scientific excellence with a sharp eye for economic and societal impact: institutes are 
highly successful in generating spin-off businesses (over 50 new companies annually). Considering the 
participation in EU funding initiatives, UT researchers have been involved in over 220 FP7-projects and in 
118 Horizon2020-projects already.
The University of Twente is one of four leading Dutch technical universities participating in the 4TU 
federation. The key people (experts) involved in the EASIER project from UT are part of the faculty of 
Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, which consists of 5 research facilities and 20 
research departments. The telecommunication engineering department is involved in the EASIER project. 
The research of the experts involved is focused in EMC and PE. The UT team participating in EASIER is 
affiliated with the Telecommunication Engineering group (TE) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, 
Mathematics and Computer Science of the UT.
