We are incredibly proud to be the winners of the 1st Dutch Higher Education Award. It is a huge honor to accept this award for everyone involved in our community, from students to staff and industry partners from the Brainport Eindhoven Innovation ecosystem. 

At TU/e innovation Space we provide a framework for Challenge Based Learning (CBL), where students learn while solving real-world challenges. CBL enables the next generation of responsible and entrepreneurial engineers to develop the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world. Winning the award, gave us recognition for our added value to education and student learning. The prize money (1.5 million) allows us to search for the next step: if you think of the future, what would the university look like? We do this from three different perspectives: student learning, the university as an organization, and the collaboration in the ecosystem.
