West University of Timisoara (WUT) is happy to announce a new partnership with the EIT Deep Tech Talent Initiative, a pioneering program that is skilling one million people within European deep tech fields by 2025. WUT has signed a pledge to contribute to the EIT Deep Tech Talent Initiative by enhancing our curriculum with specialized deep tech courses, fostering collaboration with industry partners, and facilitating experiential learning through internships and research projects.

West University of Timisoara is motivated to join the Deep Tech Talent Initiative (DTTI) to actively contribute to the development of deep tech talent and foster innovation.

Deep tech innovations – cutting-edge technological solutions combining fields of science and engineering in the physical, biological, and digital spheres – are indispensable in addressing the most pressing global challenges. However, Europe lacks the talent and skilled labor force necessary to properly leverage the new technologies to enable its green and digital transition. The EIT aims to address this gap, in line with the European Commission's New European Innovation Agenda, by developing a strong deep tech talent pool across Europe.

To address the mission of training one million individuals in deep tech before 2025, the EIT launched the 'Pledge for Deep Tech Talents', which is a vehicle for partners and sponsors to contribute to the development and delivery of the initiative's courses and training. The Pledge gathers public and private organizations, industry representatives and champions, academic partners, education providers, and Member States in support of the aim of the initiative.

West University of Timisoara, as Education and Training Provider will contribute to achieving the goal of training one million talents in deep tech fields by Computer Science, Economic Informatics, Physics Informatics.
