EEMCS reaches out both nationally as internationally to stay well informed of what is happening in the world, and to strengthen its own capabilities by forming strategic partnerships and alliances. Nationally, in the well-known construct of the triple helix, in which added value arises from collaboration between academic partners, industrial partners, and governmental institutions, EEMCS aims to jointly tackle challenges in the energy and health domains and in (cyber)security.

Working together also leads to seizing opportunities on topics such as in Blockchain (Bc3), Data Science and Smart Industry. We aim to establish international collaborations with world-class players in focus areas that contribute to our research and education activities. Natural focus areas are India (computer science), China (semi-conductors), Singapore (cyber security) and the United States (MIT/Harvard).
