From 10 to 12 June 2022, as the European University Alliance EuroTeQ will launch her first EuroTeQaThon. The EuroTeQaThon is the grand finale of the Collider and is at the heart of our European University. This challenge-based learning competition will encourage mixed teams to explore specific subjects together and work on innovative projects. As students and professionals will work together in a joint effort, all participants will not only improve their technical skills but also enhance their soft skills such as team spirit, flexibility to work in multicultural environments, and design thinking, which are also very important in professional life. In this grand final, students from the six EuroTeQ partners will show their work on the Theme Leave no waste behind with a focus on three topic domains: Cities, Energy and Consumption in three different locations.
To celebrate the process and outcomes of the first challenge, the French Embassy in The Netherlands and Eindhoven University of Technology will organize this joint event.
