The Alliance is a strategic partnership of four leading European universities of science & technology: Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Technical University of Munich (TUM). The Alliance sponsored and supported the application for a project under the H2020 PHC 21 track and associated activities such as consortium building and proposal development which finally led to the success of REACH in this track.
REACH utilizes selected complementary competencies within the EuroTech Universities network to form a core academic group that organizes the entire value chain spanning a group of industry partners, public institutions and end user groups around them for the joint development of technology to support ageing people, elderly and other care-requiring citizens. REACH is considered as the starting point for the formation and thrive of a distributed test bed and incubator that allows the EuroTech universities to systematically develop, diffuse and transfer advanced technologies into the care and home care sectors.
The close cooperation of key scientists and PhD students within REACH shall furthermore be used to facilitate synergies, future teaching opportunities, the integration of individual teaching modules via eLearning in various curricula within the EuroTech Universities and possibly even the future formation of a joint master programme in the targeted research field.
