New challenges for bachelor students - TU/e, WUR, UU and UMCU (EWUU) alliance

Dear bachelor students,

Last year we ran a few successful challenges within the alliance between the TU/e, WUR, UU and UMCU (EWUU). This year, we organize several recurring and a new challenge, for which we kindly invite the students. 

We would like to inform you about the challenges this academic year (2022-2023). In the second semester of this year we will run challenges for students from all institutes.
