We believe that combining the strength of five leading European universities of science and technology creates unique opportunities to connect, to be inspired and to innovate.


IDEA League brings people and ideas together to tackle challenges in education, research and innovation.

By capitalising on our cross-border partnerships and promoting bottom-up collaboration, we provide the environment for students, researchers and staff at our partner universities to share a collective wealth of knowledge, experience and resources. And we make this all happen through a variety of exciting programmes, funding opportunities and working groups.


The whole experience is so refreshing

The atmosphere is so open and friendly, which not only boosts our discussion about the topic, but also it’s much easier to connect with our peers. The location is so nice and the accommodation is fantastic. The whole experience is so refreshing. – Summer School ETH Zürich


Open discussion and focus on the real thing

I personally liked the fact that every group had to work on a different aspect of the same problem, this leads towards a more open discussion and focus on the real thing rather than a competition between groups. – Challenge Programme Chalmers
