The Universities of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands are firmly rooted in professional practice. Companies and institutions are intensively involved in education. That sounds logical, because today’s students are tomorrow’s employees. This certainly applies to the 25,000 IT students at these universities.

Researchers at Universities of Applied Sciences are strongly practice-oriented. The platform Practical ICT Research (PRIO) ensures that research results quickly lead to applications. Your company urgently needs an answer to a dedicated research question? Or as a teacher you want to introduce the students to the latest IT developments? We think along with you and let IT research work for you.

Platform PRIO strives for optimal cooperation between IT research groups of higher education institutions and academic universities, between education and research and between researchers, companies and social institutions. We encourage innovation by connecting organizations, but above all by bringing people together.
