TU/e Innovation Lab focuses on knowledge valorization.
Our main activity is contributing to knowledge transfer to the market and aiming for research funds. TU/e strives for more strategic partnerships with the industry. By working together as partners on a strategic level, we want to support these companies in the realization of their R&D targets. Current agreements with multinationals as Shell and Philips, stress the mutual interest of multilateral cooperations.
TU/e Innovation Lab also prepares students for the changing demand on the labor market. More and more highly skilled engineers with an innovative- and entrepreneurial mindset are needed to cope with rapid development and environmental changes. These engineers either choose for a corporate career or will become an entrepreneur themselves. In developing skills and competences, experience is key!
TU/e SURE Innovation is a pilot project in which selected students are employed to work for companies on study related projects. We allocate only high potential master students to companies for shorter or longer assignments. The advantages are twofold: students gain relevant work experience and the companies benefit from affordable intellectual support with young power and energy, eager to add value.
TU/e Innovation Lab supports young student-entrepreneurs who want to start-up their own venture. Professional guidance in business development, finance- and accommodation facilities and a community of experienced entrepreneurs are offered to prepare this new generation for the challenges of the unknown future.
