ITEC is a research group dedicated to the design, development, and evaluation of software for automated decision support, aimed at helping people to make better decisions on the basis of data analysis, (meta-)heuristics, and visualization. Researchers at ITEC conduct both fundamental and applied research, often in close collaboration with industrial partners in sectors such as ICT, media, education and training, health, logistics, and manufacturing. They are active in two areas: technology-enhanced learning and operational optimization.

ITEC is affiliated with KU Leuven (University of Leuven) and imec (formerly: iMinds), Flanders’ high-tech research and innovation hub for nanoelectronics and digital technologies. ITEC has offices in Kortrijk (KU Leuven campus Kulak) and Ghent (KU Leuven Technologiecampus Gent).
