Utrecht-Eindhoven Alliance Day
In 2017 the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Utrecht University (UU) and the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht) have reinforced their existing collaboration with the establishment of an alliance, supported by a dedicated fund. This should help cement the on-going partnerships in the research and education fields of energy& climate, regenerative medicine & imaging and sport & vitality. But it should also lead to new strong combination of expertise, thereby contributing to solving today and tomorrow’s societal challenges.
During the Utrecht-Eindhoven alliance day, at june 22, there will be an opportunity to reflect on progress to date and forge collaboration for future plans. We would like to invite you to visit this day together with other researchers, (educational) staff and students. Also companies interested in collaborating with research institutes are welcome to join.
The day will be facilitated by Gert-Jan Jansen.
