The TU/e Contest is an initiative of TU/e innovation Space. It is a contest for entrepreneurial engineers with international ambitions. The contestants are standing on the shoulders of the TU/e Contest & TU/e innovation Space network. The teams are getting to know successful entrepreneurs and leading international companies that are coaching them on their way from dream to demo to world market.
Every year, since the first edition in 2015, the TU/e Contest has offered students the opportunity to further develop their own, ingenious ideas, prototypes and research projects into business plans.
The main purpose and mission is to challenge students to create great, out-of-the-box thinking innovative solutions for societal problems and translate them into real products and business plans, while interacting and making use of the expertise from our innovative and very knowledgeable partners.
This year the 6th edition of the TU/e Contest will take place and over the years it has grown into a platform that every student can benefit from. In previous editions, hundreds of students have developed ideas and prototypes with regard to important societal themes, drawn up business plans and exchanged valuable knowledge with the (local) business community. Many new partners have joined our network and are eager to work with students of Eindhoven University of Technology on successful innovations.
In a 4TU context, the format of the TU/e Contest will be used in 2020 to organize similar competitions at all 4 technical universities (TU Delft, University of Twente, WUR, TU/e). The entries of these competitions have the chance to compete in Q4 of 2020 in the ‘Dutch 4TU Impact Challenge’. More information about this challenge can be read in July via our website and social media channels.
