In 2006, TUM founded the EuroTech Universities Alliance together with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Today, the Alliance is a strategic partnership of four leading European universities of science and technology:
- Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)
- Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e, seit 2008)
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, seit 2011)
- Technische Universität München (TUM)
Together they are committed to finding technical solutions which address the major challenges of modern society. Their intensive collaboration across research, education and innovation support the EU’s goal of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
At each of the EuroTech Universities, funding is available for the initiation of new collaborative projects with the Alliance partners. At TUM, the TUM Global Incentive Fund supports initiatives that further strengthen and develop the collaboration between the partners and actively engage the joint office in Brussels.
More information on the Alliance and its current activities can be found on the EuroTech Universities Alliance Website.
There are new subsidies available for the TUM Global Incentive Fund. The GIF supports TUM scholars and scientists in exploring and intensifying new and existing international cooperations within the EuroTech Alliance. Applications can be submitted by October 23, 2017.
