In March of this year, the European Union announced about its intention to build the new “EU TUMO Convergence Center” for engineering and applied science. The EU has granted €12.5 million towards this.
The centre will be a hub for research, education and startups, bringing together local and international partners to bridge the gap between higher education and industry in the country.
The EU has now launched an international design competition for the centre. Architects worldwide are invited to apply.
With an area of 25,000 square metres, the centre will become a vibrant community fostering high-tech innovation and state–of-the-art education.
More information on the competition can be found here.
The competition jury is headed by Hashim Sarkis, Dean of the MIT School of Architecture and curator of the 2020 Venice Biennale.
