Since the first edition back in 2015, the TU/e Contest offers students every year the opportunity to further develop their own, ingenious ideas, prototypes and research projects in Minimal Viable Products and business plans.

The main purpose and mission from the first edition onwards is challenging 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.

The TU/e Contest 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 valuabele knowledge with the (local) business community.

This year the 5th edition will be organised in close collaboration with TU/e innovation Space. Many new partners have joined our network and are eager to work with students of Eindhoven University of Technology on successful innovations. We are extremely grateful to Eindhoven University of Technology, TU/e innovation Space and our partners for celebrating this anniversary edition

In a 4TU context, the format of the TU/e Contest will be used in 2019 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 2019 in the ‘Dutch 4TU Impact Challenge’. More information about this challenge can be read in February via our website and social media channels.
