R&I Focus Areas

Together, the six EuroTech Universities cover the whole range of technical disciplines and many more. As an alliance, we focus our core collaboration on research, innovation, and education in five fast developing areas. These EuroTech Focus Areas are both of crucial importance to Europe’s industry and society and of strategic interest to all our universities.

The six EuroTech Universities are part of the world’s most prestigious universities, be it in terms of outstanding research activities with high societal impact, collaborating with industry, or educating the engineers of tomorrow. Our guide star are the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. All our Focus Areas contribute to several of these 17 goals and therefore to fulfilling the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
