Why?

Bright Lab has been hosting several activities in the energy field for students, such as case nights, congresses and hackathons. While the outcomes of these activities are great, we still noticed a gap. Where can students with bright ideas go to and make them happen? This is what Bright Lab is for. Bright Lab supports students with bright ideas.

How?

Bright Lab is organized by students that are members of Team Energy. The Bright Lab team is supported by the TU/e. Bright Lab offers an inspiring workspace with related projects, a prototyping area and training workshops monthly. Our project coordinators and the network of Bright Lab will be able to help you through the first phase of your idea.

What?

Bright Lab is a bottom-up initiative from the members of Team Energy in collaboration with the TU/e Innovation Lab. Moreover, it is a part and pilot of  Innovation Space that TU/e will launch in 2018. Bright Lab is a community and incubator for entrepreneurial students in the field of energy. It is located on the TU/e campus within the Innovation Lab. We show and create opportunities for entrepreneurial students.
