TU/e is a proud founder of EuroTeQ, which emerged from the EuroTech Universities Alliance. Anchored in diverse geographical and cultural contexts, each partner, with their corresponding eco-system, provides added value and a competitive advantage to the EuroTeQ cooperation. As six leading Universities of Science and Technology, EuroTeQ is equipped to introduce a paradigm shift in the engineering education of the future, aspiring responsible value co-creation in technology.

Societal developments of recent years call for strong University Alliances to make the Knowledge Square of Education, Research, Innovation and Service to Society a reality. EuroTeQ’s ambition is to create a real impact Europe-wide, enabling other universities and stakeholders to follow its example, fostering technological progress and societal cohesion.
The EuroTeQ Collider is a co-creative innovation journey in which interdisciplinary and international teams work towards their idea of a desirable future. Every Collider works around a central theme. The current theme is Leave no waste behind.
Each partner within EuroTeQ has a different format for their Collider. Teams work on the challenges locally and receive different forms of coaching and training to bring their ideas to the next level.
Towards the end of the Collider@TU/e, a local judging panel will select one representative per topic domain. These teams get the chance to compete during the EuroTeQaThon, where all selected teams of each partner university come together and compete for the big prize: a trip to Brussels to present their ideas to the European Union.
During the collider, inter-disciplinary (and international) teams will be invited to explore different aspects of this challenge, develop solutions towards a desirable future, test and validate ideas, and create prototypes of their solution.

The meaning “Engineering University” is twofold: To provide excellent education to future engineers and to engineer the University of the Future, as a role model for the EU Higher Education Area and beyond. And you, as a TU/e student or employee, can help us do this! Check out the EuroTeQ website on how you can join us.

The European Universities Initiative is one of the European Commission’s most prestigious calls for proposals. The objective of this instrument is to establish ambitious European university alliances over the next few years that will make the European university landscape even stronger. The EU is funding EuroTeQ as part of its European Universities programme over the next three years with around five million euros through Erasmus+ and two million euros from Horizon 2020.
