In 2021, EuroTech Universities Alliance celebrates its 10th anniversary. Following the anniversary slogan “Empowering Society”, this year’s EuroTech High-level Event will explore the benefits of technology for society, but also its limitations. We look forward to engaging in a dialogue with citizens, policymakers, researchers, and YOU.

Join us on 10 November for a lively discussion!


Are we getting it right?

Societal needs are at the centre of our work but do we actually listen? What is the role of society in the innovation process? How do universities of science and technology come into play?What can be solved with the help of technology, what cannot and where does technology maybe even come with challenges itself? And how is this reflected in policymaking?

10 Years of EuroTech

What started as a bilateral partnership already back in 2006 has grown into a strong alliance of six leading universities of science and technology. In 2011, the EuroTech Universities Alliance was formally established. Since then, we have been developing solutions to the grand challenges of society together and will continue to do so.
