All six EuroTech Universities – DTU, EPFL, L’X, Technion, TU/e, and TUM – put great emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship. That is why it is one of EuroTech’s so-called “Focus Areas”. All universities dispose of excellent support facilities for future entrepreneurs and integrate innovation in their curricula. Within EuroTech, they combine these strengths and open their respective offers, from which you can benefit as a researcher, teacher, and student.
For students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and bringing their ideas to the market, EuroTech has set up a dedicated programme – the European Venture Programme. Each year, it offers 25 young start-ups exclusive access to the entrepreneurship expertise and networking resources available at the six EuroTech Universities. This is done for instance through workshops and meetings with investors and potential collaborators from industry. So you benefit from access to six different innovation ecosystems at once.
On an academic level, different Working Groups gather innovation experts from the six universities to work on joint innovation concepts and programmes.
