The best place for students to get hands-on experience with technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.

ImpactLab allows multidisciplinary student teams to work with the latest technology and to develop solutions for real life challenges. Through the connection with YES!Delft, one of the top technical incubators in Europe, and working for actual customers, you will learn how to make real impact through innovation and technology.


ImpactLab is dedicated to making impact through innovation by working on societal and corporate challenges with a team of diverse talents. The list below features projects have been working on. Currently we have the last ImpactLab team in this format working with robotdog Spot.
At the moment we are shaping a new project focussing on Smart Cities, Energy Transition and Robotics in public spaces.

SmartCampus: The Campus of the Future

In close cooperation with EUR Real Estate, data will be colllected on air quality, flow of people and heat distribution. The data can be projected live on a detailed 3D printed model of the campus.
The “smart table of the EUR campus” can help all stakeholders make evidence-based decisions, such as changes in routing, the addition of facilities, and overall liveability.

Spot: Transformative

Impactlab teams Spot works with several stakeholders in finding new applications for Spot the robotdog in the area of inspection, warehouse automation, data collection and security. Mobility without boundaries will open up a world of unlimited possibilities.


With our population to grow and get older over time we need to look for technological solutions to make our healthcare more resilient. Examples of SocialTech are: Solutions aimed at support and care for people with a disability. Solutions that help with physical or mental issues. Solutions that improve social wellbeing. Solutions that help elderly people to live longer, healthy and independent at home.
