The IDEA League is a focused network of leading European universities of science and technology. Its members are TU Delft, RWTH Aachen, ETH Zurich, Chalmers University and Politecnico di Milano.
Each member has a respectable research-oriented profile and is the largest producer of engineering and science graduates in its own country. One of the IDEA League’s main ambitions is to re-establish Europe as a technological and scientific leader by bundling academic resources and knowledge. The term IDEA comes from the first letter of each of the founding institutions.
Our joint activities in education, research and quality assurance, as well as our joint participation in EU programmes and initiatives make us a model of European cooperation. Together, we create added value by pooling resources for collaborative and complementary programmes for our students, researchers and staff.
META is contributing to IDEA League by coordinating the Idea League Working Group on Ethics, which aims at sharing experiences and best practices with regard to how to address ethical and societal issues both in technological research and education.
