At the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, our goal is to make a difference globally and to help shape the future through world-class research, education and innovation.
In today's world, where societal challenges can no longer be solved with a single approach or from a single perspective, we research the interplay between society and technology. At TPM we have a strong tradition of analysing and modelling the structure and functioning of these complex sociotechnical systems, and of designing solutions to solve major societal challenges.
Our focus is on the societal issues found in fields such as digital society, climate action & energy transition, urbanisation, transport, safety & security, and health & well-being. We combine insights from the engineering sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. In so doing, we use our three perspectives: systems, values and governance. Our extensive network is both nationally and internationally oriented.
