We had the fantastic opportunity to learn more about the upcoming activities of the European Innovation Community 🇪🇺 under EIT Urban Mobility and EIT Health in the region. We shared our experience and inspired our partners with the best practices in 5G use cases (automated guided vehicles, augmented reality enabling human-robot collaboration) and the latest innovations in additive 3D printing technology. The TUL’s best practices in educating for entrepreneurship and fostering the entrepreneurial spirit are undoubtedly the 🏎️Formula Student TUL Racing project, the 🏆Student Business Club or the creative workshop 🧪TULab. On the second day, we used the incredible opportunity to visit the creative community centre Kontakt in Liebieg’s Palace and the regional business incubator LipoInk. There, we met with startups and young companies from the region, including Flapper Drones, Hardwario and NullSpaces.

And what comes next? 🤩 We are passionate about supporting students’ entrepreneurship and have many exciting opportunities at hand for them to get involved in. We are holding our 10th annual competition for the best TUL startup (more here) and i-Days at the TUL for our inventive and entrepreneurial students in cooperation with EIT Health. The best team will represent the Czech Republic at the European finals in Budapest (🇭🇺)!
