About this course

During this innovation-learning journey to enhance your understanding of the societal challenges we face, you will co-create solutions towards a sustainable future.

The collider is the signature challenge-based co-creation activity of the EuroTeQ project that occured for the first time in Spring 2022. The collider is based on a process of selecting and working with multi-stakeholder driven ideas and challenges within a selected theme. More information about the specific challenges will be published online via: https://www.tue.nl/en/our-university/about-the-university/university-alliances-networks/engineer-the-future-with-us/

The structure of the collider will allow one to form and participate in interdisciplinary – international teams consisting of students and in collaboration with lifelong learners. Together you will work on open-ended challenge-based projects while developing a broad set of soft-skills aiming at improving your capabilities to: a) offer an innovative and entrepreneurial solution that is not only technically et; b) address uncertainty and acting while being out of your comfort zone. At the end of the collider all participants will pitch their results in a European context and have a chance to join the EuroTeQaThon. The ultimate goal of these events is to collectively develop solutions and actionable opportunities to create a desired future.
