The Utrecht – Eindhoven Alliance Day on June 22, 2017 will mark the opening of the call for proposals for the 10 million euro Alliance fund. This fund will help step up the collaboration that already existed in the areas of regenerative medicine, medical imaging, porous materials and sustainable energy and stimulate new areas of joint research. The Alliance Day is an opportunity for researchers to meet fellow researchers and companies and explore opportunities for collaboration.
In 2011 the University of Utrecht, Eindhoven University of Technology and the University Medical Center (UMC) Utrecht formed an alliance for collaboration in the areas of education, research and knowledge valorization. The Alliance Day on June 22 is held to reinforce this collaboration. On this day researchers from the three institutes can explore opportunities for joint research and get more acquainted with the expertise and activities of each other’s organisation. Companies and other stakeholders interested in the research areas covered by the alliance are welcome to join the discussion as well. Researchers can use the Alliance Day registration form to indicate what topics they would like to discuss with which companies/fellow researchers
10 million for research
The new director of the Alliance, Laetitia Ouillet stated: ”The fund is designed to reinforce the collaboration in areas where complementary expertise and experience enable the alliance partners to excel together.” On the Alliance Day researchers will receive more information on the call procedures and conditions, so that they can prepare their proposals with a deadline set for 2 October.
Because the challenges society faces call for a new approach
In 2017 the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Utrecht University (UU) and the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht) have reinforced their existing collaboration with the establishment of an alliance, supported by a dedicated fund. This should help cement the on-going partnerships in the research and education fields of energy & climate, regenerative medicine & imaging and sport & vitality. But it should also lead to new strong combination of expertise, thereby contributing to solving today and tomorrow’s societal challenges.
This year, in 2017, the Utrecht-Eindhoven Alliance day will be an opportunity to reflect on progress to date and forge collaboration for future plans.
Researchers, (educational) staff, students but also companies interested in collaborating with research institutes are welcome to join. Do not hesitate to forward this invitation to anyone you would like to see joining the discussion. <<more>>
