Team up for Talent & Impact: How you can JOIN

The Dutch government funds an important part of scientific education and research but not all of it! Alternative revenue is very important in preserving both the University of Twente’s unique character as well as supporting its ambitions relating to education, research and innovation. Contributions are vital to achieve this and support from over 1.200 alumni donors makes a huge difference.

Alumni based in the US can help support innovative education and pioneering research at The University of Twente

The University of Twente Friends Fund established under the Netherland-America Foundation (NAF) enables us to connect with the nearly 1000 member strong American (alumni) network while also offering you the US income tax deduction available to charitable donors in the USA.

Unrestricted donations received from US alumni and friends will be used to fund work at the UT Waterlab near the pond of the Hogekamp opening in the Spring of 2022 where researchers are developing a new class of membranes for filtering medicines, pesticides and hormones from our wastewater and drinking water. Click below to see a short video by UT scientist Wiebe de Vos who together with his research group is leading this effort.
