LINQ is open!

June 7, 2018


This monday marked a special day in the journey of our team. Together with partners, coaches and advisors we officially opened LINQ, connected to improve, during the first day of the Dutch Technology Week on the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology.

The adventure of VIRTUe started in September 2015, when a group of 16 honours students decided to sign up for the Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018, along with 40 other teams from 20 different countries. Never would these ambitious students have imagened that 3 years later they would be standing on the threshold of LINQ, with a team of 50 students and even more partners by their sides.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this project. We look forward to the rest of our cooperation. Next up is Dubai!
