Research groups and student projects for Applied Research

The Fontys ICT InnovationLab is where new innovations are created for ICT, which requires applied research. Partners in Innovation, united in SPARC, work closely with students and researchers, providing the questions and challenges that form research projects for our students. At the same time, applied research is done by our professorships in research groups with our research partners, focused on topics like artificial intelligence, robots, human capital, applied games, data & software services and digital communities. This includes long-term research projects funded by NWO grants and contributions from SPARC members. Working as a researcher at Fontys ICT InnovationLab means sharing knowledge, learning, innovating and creating the future with business and the next generation of ICT professionals.
