In 1980, this Conference has been started following a joint initiative of Aachen and Vienna,
to establish an informal group of representatives from leading engineering universities in Europe,

The basic objectives of The Conference are to offer an open forum for

  • discussing topics of major common concern, that are not discussed in other fora,
  • identifying differences and commonalities of existing solutions to problems of common interest,
  • developing new ideas and - if appropriate - preparing recommendations on specific topics, and, thus,
  • forming a "think tank" for the future development of the universities of technology in Europe.

As an informal group The Conference has no formal international or European organisational structure.
