The jury selects the three best projects whose teams receive financial prizes and will represent TalTech at the EuroTeQaThon** between EuroTeQ partner universities. It will be held for the third time and this time at the Czech Technical University in Prague on the 10th-12th of June. Course in which students do projects and solve challenges have joined EuroTeQ Collider.
The main goal of the event is to make visible the results of a problem- and project-based learning both from the point of view of the students, the teachers, research groups and companies - these are practical examples where the cooperation of different parties has made it possible to bring together real-life problems, science, entrepreneurship, various fields - in order to create a path for innovation and encourage more to take such a hands-on approach. And, of course, sustainability is the overarching theme.
*There may be minor changes in the agenda based on the exact number of teams. ** At both the first and second EuroTeQaThon, the teams representing TalTech have done very well, as they have brought home the category victory (if you are more interested, you can read more about both teams in Mente et Manu).
