29 June 2022 | After winning the Dutch Higher Education Award last year, TU/e innovation Space ended first in the European contest ‘Innovation and Collaboration Space of the Year’. In the finale, during the ACEEU (Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities) Stakeholders Forum in Florence, TU/e innovation Space pitched their innovative practice with four other European nominees.
TU/e innovation Space is Eindhoven University of Technology’s learning hub for educational innovation, the centre of expertise for Challenge-Based Learning and student entrepreneurship, and an open community where students, researchers, industry, and societal organisations collaborate on real-world challenges, in the fields of sustainable energy, healthcare, agri-food, and tech and many others.
The Triple E Awards are a global recognition of efforts toward the quest for entrepreneurship and engagement in higher education. It is the first award to focus specifically on the different dimensions of the mission of universities, aiming to promote change and highlight the role of these institutions in the community. Implemented regionally, the Triple E Awards aim to foster change in universities and emphasize their role in their communities and ecosystems.
