Since 2004 several funded projects covering ±1M have been implemented in collaboration with academic and industrial partners such as PoliMi, AUAS, HvA, Cornell, TUE, EmgDotArt, 3D Robot Printing, Dutch Growth Factory, ESA, Vertico, KUKA, ABB, etc. Results are published internationally in more than 120 journals and books such as TU Delft Open Spool Cyber-physical Architecture journal, Springer's book series Adaptive Environments and exhibits such as Imprimer le Monde at Centre Pompidou in Paris 2017, Dutch Design Week 2018 and 2020, etc. Collaboration on projects has inspired the establishment of the international network Adaptive Environments, which hosts recurring activities such as workshops, symposia, etc. for exchanging ideas and developing content for new projects.

With the Variable Stiffness project featured on the PostNL Innovation Stamps ( (2021) research implemented in RB lab has been acknowledged as one of the 10 most relevant innovations developed at TU Delft. The innovation relies on linking design to production, assembly and operation of buildings and envisioning buildings as resulting from human-computer and human-robot interactions. Thereby the manufacturing plant or building site and the building itself operate as Cyber-physical Systems within the larger Internet of Things and People.
