Analysing and improving the impact of our partnership

The overall vision of the project is to become the leading eco-system for collaborative responsible value creation in technology in including all relevant stakeholders in technological innovation processes. To make this vision reality by 2030, we need to analyse and learn from the experiences gained during the three years project span. It is necessary that we not only monitor our activities carefully but also feedback the result of our observations in the different output parts of our project, reshaping it in an agile manner.

EuroTeQ Connector – co-creating with society

The overall vision of the project is to become the leading eco-system for collaborative responsible value creation in technology in including all relevant stakeholders in technological innovation processes. To make this vision reality by 2030, we need to analyse and learn from the experiences gained during the three years project span. It is necessary that we not only monitor our activities carefully but also feedback the result of our observations in the different output parts of our project, reshaping it in an agile manner.

The EuroTeQ Connector assesses the interaction with different societal actors and ensures the quality of the project and the impact of a paradigm change in education. It is our aim to institutionalise the active engagement with our associated partners to co-create the pilot phase and ensure the project’s long-term sustainability.

Boost the research and innovation dimension of the EuroTeQ Engineering University

With ‘BoostEuroTeQ’ (funded under H2020) we aim at strengthening the research and innovation realm of our partnership. It strongly builds on synergies with its education-focused activities (funded by Erasmus+) to reinforce institutional change towards responsible research and innovation. We seek to enable individuals in technology value creation to interact with stakeholders of the wider society ensuring desirable and socially robust pathways for societal transformation. The work plan set out in BoostEuroTeQ strengthens and complements core parts of the EuroTeQ Engineering University.

EuroTeQ upskilling strategy – training professionals

We will develop a concept for training learning professionals at universities and position them as key actors facilitating knowledge transfer and co-creative innovation between the university and the wider ecosystem. By defining a ‘EuroTeQ Upskilling Strategy’, we will establish our partners as constant companions in the lifelong learning journeys of engineers in Europe. This will enable the partnership to develop and implement an improved strategy for strengthening human capital and will reinforce the cooperation with non-academic actors.

EuroTeQ Manifesto – evaluating the impact of co-creative education

We will analyse the EuroTeQ partners’ needs in terms of institutional strategies for reflexivity and develop a ‘EuroTeQ Manifesto’ for institutionalization. It will investigate how universities can engage with their surroundings by developing “learning networks”. We also will design an approach to evaluate the impact of co-creative education for innovation and understand its scalability. With that, our partnerhsip will reinforce the impact of university research and innovation and build sustainable involvement and engagement with citizens and civil society.

EuroTeQ – a prestige project of the European Commission

The European Universities Initiative is one of the European Commission’s most prestigious funding schemes. The objective of this instrument is to establish ambitious European university alliances over the next few years that will make the European university landscape even stronger. The EU is funding EuroTeQ as part of its European Universities programme over three years with around five million euros through Erasmus+ and two million euros from Horizon 2020.
