An important event is that the results of our yearly OpenCall are now known. We are happy to announce that four new innovative and iconic OpenCall 2021 project proposals, valued at over 11 million euros, have been granted. We are excited to welcome these projects and have them join our internal community! Read more in this newsletter.

Additionally, we again participated in TU/e’s PDEng Design Challenge. This time, the Library of the Future was our challenge for the PDEng trainees. We also want to share the interesting work of Ralf Zelders from his consultancy work on the business innovation perspective of activities at Eindhoven Engine, as well as news from the Academy, the building up of our internal community and our contribution during the Dutch Technology Week with the Smart Mobility @ Eindhoven Engine broadcast and a talk show titled ‘A Vital Working Environment’.
