Please join us for a roundtable discussion of what Estonian higher education institutions can learn from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in terms of how to support student startups. The session will be most relevant for experts developing support measures for student innovation and entrepreneurship at the higher education level, as well as representatives of the public sector. Our presenters and advisors are covering the path of student startups coming out of the top technology university: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
