The central task that HumTec is facing, namely to cope with global challenges by strengthening and further developing interdisciplinary cooperations, is basically faced by many technical universities at home and abroad. Therefore, new synergies for the understanding as well as the implementation of interdisciplinary cooperations are created through internationalization. Networks, especially those between the European Technical Universities (IDEA-League), are being further developed. A key role is played by the cooperation in the border triangle with the University of Maastricht and the University of Liège. Here there are important institutions for Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Technology Assessment.
