A past full of innovations. A future full of promises.
65 years ago, TU/e started from a dream of the region. Philips and DAF foresaw a future in which technology is central. Meanwhile, more than 50,000 alumni have contributed to making this dream come true. During and/or after their studies, they contribute together with you to 65 years of innovation, growth and progress.
Groot Eindhoven is now a melting pot of innovation, technology and progress. Thanks to companies and organizations that develop new products and concepts time and again. Who experience the advantage of the supply of high-quality technological talent.
We see a bright future for our region and we at TU/e are happy to contribute to that. By giving talents space, resources and guidance that allows them to grow into the heroes of tomorrow.
Do you help build THE FUTURE?
Support the heroes of the future. So that the heroes of tomorrow can ensure that technology and engineering continue to play a leading role. They work on social projects and need materials for that. And sometimes a financial contribution to complete their studies, if this is endangered by force majeure.
Let's work together for a brighter future.

These are the talents that will make our future cleaner, healthier and better. Their development as talent is or was partly made possible by the fund. And of course by donors like you.
Dirk van Meer - Sustainable upcycling of difficult waste and recycling of precious metals
Dirk is the captain of Team Core. Their mission is special and very sustainable. And it is twofold: turning waste that is difficult to process into a raw material from which one can make ballast material, for example. And with the heat that is released, the precious metals from electronics are efficiently recycled. A project in which many talents and all disciplines of the TU/e have a role. Supplemented by people from Fontys and Avans and a number of external experts. Read the interview with the driven and ambitious team captain here.

TU/e to acquire top electron microscope
Robert-Jan Smits, president of the Executive Board of Eindhoven University of Technology shared: “The university thanks DAF Trucks and the PACCAR Foundation for its generous donation, which will enhance TU/e advanced research and development in the life sciences and materials sciences. The acquisition of the sophisticated soft matter electron-microscope and technical laboratory equipment is very important as universities and medical centers accelerate research to develop solutions to global health and material issues. DAF founder Hub van Doorne was among the early leaders to recognize the benefits of establishing TU/e. The university was founded in 1956 and is celebrating 65 years of excellence.”
University Fund Eindhoven
Will you support a future in which talents can continue to flourish to the full? In which students can grow into the engineers who develop the solutions that the world is waiting for?
The Eindhoven University Fund helps students to develop their talent. By financing projects that make our lives and our world more pleasant and better. But also with activities focused on developing talent and helping students who – through matters out of their hands – are dealing with practical or financial problems. Our Fund is recognized as a public benefit organization (PBO, abbreviated in Dutch as ANBI). This means that your donation is tax deductible.
