The people at the Technical Development Studio are my most important colleagues. I depend on good equipment to be able to do my experiments.
The equipment I need is not for sale as the research I do has never been done before. The first people I spoke to when I moved from Delft to Wageningen in 2004, were the people from the TD Studio and their role in my work has continued to grow.
They are involved, customer-oriented and can design good technical solutions, even for those researchers who have no knowledge of mechanical engineering. Together with a student, I often deliberate with the people at the TD Studio. This is also pleasant and productive and together we have designed and created many setups.
