The EuroTech Universities Alliance, an international partnership dedicated to producing new knowledge and translating it into action for the benefit of society, will highlight innovations in communication and education as well as technology at the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF 2014), June 21-26 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The partners of the Alliance, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), and Technische Universitt Mnchen (TUM), chose ESOF 2014, organized around the theme of "science building bridges," as the perfect forum to offer practical examples of their contributions to society.
An ESOF session organized by the Alliance will turn the spotlight on MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses, as a potentially disruptive innovation for scientific and technical education in Europe, on Tuesday morning, June 24.
Further, the Alliance will present the first issue of Technologist, a new popular science and technology magazine with a mission to provoke public interest and informed debate.
Finally, EuroTech Universities Alliance will present selected research projects throughout the week. These range from novel scanning, imaging and modeling technologies to innovations in food, drugs, energy, and tactile sensing for cognitive machines. These exhibits can be viewed in the House of Future Technologies at the ESOF site.
