What started as a bilateral partnership already back in 2006 has grown into a strong alliance of six leading universities of science and technology. In 2011, the EuroTech Universities Alliance was formally established. Since then, we have been developing solutions to the grand challenges of society together and will continue to do so.

Throughout the year, we will look back on the achievements of the past decade. But above and before all, we will prepare for the one to come. We hope you join us to celebrate the anniversary!

From the origins to today

TUM and DTU team up

Technical University of Munich and Technical University of Denmark engage in a strategic collaborative arrangement, which sees the strengthening of bottom-up joint activities between the two universities. The EuroTech “founding fathers” are highly esteemed polytechnic institutions with a world-wide reputation.
