E&I Touchdown

Every semester businesses have the chance to profit from our research based business consulting. E&I students work on innovative solutions for companies ranging from innovative start-ups to established businesses (e.g. Microsoft, KPMG) as well as international research organisations (e.g. CERN, Fraunhofer). The students are guided by the institute‘s researchers and lecturers, moreover supported by external consultants (e.g. BCG, AT Kearney, Accenture). So far, more than 700 projects have been conducted with over 100 satisfied business and research partners.

The E&I Touchdown is our festive get-together and dedicated to innovative solutions powered by research. This evening is a good opportunity to get to know the E&I Institute, some of WU’s top-students and other involved businesses.
