Twente Alumni Lecture - Challenge Based Education: Gardens that give you energy

ECIU U of which the UT is a founding partner is the first European university where learners, teachers and researchers from across the continent cooperate with society and businesses to solve real-life challenges. One such challenge submitted by the Netherlands, Nature and Environmental Federations focuses on Energy Gardens. 

Sandor Löwik (UT IE&M'96 PhD'13) is the programme coordinator for the 'Energietuinen Nederland' project which aims to show how energy generation can be of value to landscape and surroundings by adding functionalities such as biodiversity, recreation, education and innovation. Sandor gets reinforcements this March in the form of ECIU U students looking into new business models encouraging developers to consider multiple functionalities in their solar parks and increasing biodiversity. Hear more details about the challenge during Sandor's talk and share your own ideas!

During this gathering you will also hear the latest news from the university as well as join a virtual ‘borrel’ where you and your fellow alumni can (re)connect with each other in small groups based on their locations and Twente study years.

ABOUT THE TWENTE ALUMNI LECTURES: Most alumni are already familiar with the terms “Entrepreneurial University”& “High Tech, Human Touch” in the context of our Twente ‘DNA’. But how about 'Citizen Science' or 'ECIU U'? The 2021 Twente Alumni Lectures put a spotlight on the university’s strategic ambitions for the next decade by focusing on these new areas. Join one or more of these special gatherings to learn about actual projects behind these terms – how are they impacting society? What is the role alumni can play? Are you curious yet?
