Eurocircuits is fully committed to help and support European electronics students with their educational projects during their academic careers, after all they are the future of the European electronics industry.
Today, students set up a specific legal entity to run their educational projects which are effectively being managing a real business. Eurocircuits seeks to form a WIN-WIN partnership with these entities by supplying the bare PCB’s for the project and purchasing advertisement from the Team.
How does it work in practice?
First the Team must establish a budget for the bare PCB’s required for their project. This is easily be created with by using the Eurocircuits calculator.
When the budget is established:
- the Team sends this detailed budget to Dirk Stans including a full description of the Teams’ project and ambition. All the details about the Teams’ legal entity and relevant contact details must be included. An overview of what is required is available here.
- At the same time the Team sets up a Eurocircuits customer account, ensuring that all the correct details of the teams’ legal entity are included along with details of all necessary contacts. Teams can also take over the customer account of their predecessors and adjust the contact details to the present situation.
The Team manager for the electronics together with Dirk Stans will then discuss the budget and agree on the budget available from Eurocircuits for the project (amount in Euro excluding VAT).
The Team is then able to use its online Eurocircuits customer account as with any other Eurocircuits customer. Using the Eurocircuits account, the Team processes their PCB files through the PCB Visualizer ensuring that it meets the Eurocircuits manufacturing criteria. If the design meets the criteria then it can be checked out and ordered. When the PCB’s are received the invoices must be paid in a normal way.
To support the Team, Eurocircuits purchases advertisement and publicity to the value of the budget agreed. This amount cannot be higher than the total amount of PCB’s that have been bought by the Team and can also not be higher than the budget (amount in Euro excluding VAT). …
