Our society is facing major challenges in areas such as energy, climate, health, safety and security, sustainability and mobility. The students and scientists at this university envisage great opportunities for ingenious technological solutions to contribute to solving these great social challenges. The Eindhoven University Fund (UF/e) promotes education and research that enables talent to flourish and groundbreaking research to be conducted in cases where regular funding is not available.
