Introduction

Dear Student Team,

Eurocircuits is fully committed to helping and supporting European electronics student teams with their Electronic Project during their academic careers. After all they are the future of the European electronics industry.

Today, students can set up a specific legal entity to run their educational projects and are effectively being managed as a real business.

Eurocircuits seeks to form a WIN-WIN partnership with these entities by supplying the bare or assembled PCBs for the project and purchasing advertisement from the Team in return.

Let’s have fun making electronics with future engineers!

Kind regards and good luck,

Dirk Stans
Managing Partner

Benefits

PCB and Assembly Services

Eurocircuits is willing to support student teams by delivering the PCBs, bare board or assembled, to finish their project. Because student teams can set up a legal entity to run their project, they can be managed as a real business and place orders with Eurocircuits as a business customer. How does this work? The team starts by creating a Customer account and sending in an application to file for student support. Once the application is approved and the budget is established, the team can start ordering. The order will be invoiced and paid by the team accordingly. Afterwards, Eurocircuits purchases advertisement and publicity to the value of the agreed budget and reinvoices the value of the orders back to the student team. In this way, Eurocircuits receives more exposure and added value to post on their social media channels in return for supporting the student teams by delivering PCBs.

Workshops and Webinars given by Eurocircuits

Eurocircuits is willing to give a workshop and/or webinar to further support the team in realising their electronic project or learning more about electronics in general. Feel free to make your own request about a subject or check our list of possible subjects below. List of possible subjects:

How to apply for Student Team Support?

Step One – Establish a Budget

Establish a budget for the bare or assembled PCBs you require for your project.

This can easily be done by using the Eurocircuits Online Calculator. More information about how to calculate and order can be found here.

Send this detailed budget to Patricia Vander Slaghmolen including a description of the Teams’ project and ambitions.

Upon receiving this email, she will call you to discuss this budget (amount in Euros excluding VAT) and the details needed to create a partnership-agreement.

Step  Two – Deliver Partnership-agreement and Contact Details

You will receive an email containing a first proposal for a partnership-agreement and a form for the team to complete with all the details about the Teams’ legal entity and relevant contact details.

Please return this as soon as possible.

Step Three – Order your PCB

Your team is now able to use its online Eurocircuits customer account like any other Eurocircuits customer.

Using the Eurocircuits account, the Team processes their data through the online Visualizer tool ensuring that it meets the Eurocircuits manufacturing criteria.

If the design meets the criteria, it can be checked out and ordered.

Important Note – To support the Team, Eurocircuits purchases advertisement and publicity to the value of the agreed budget. This amount cannot be higher than the total amount of PCBs that have been bought by the Team and can also not be higher than the budget (amount in Euro excluding VAT).

Advertisement and Publicity Required by Eurocircuits

The minimum requirements as described in the Partnership Agreement:

Blogs

The Team writes two blogs in English throughout the year about the Teams project (technical) in cooperation with Eurocircuits and the Teams adventure with their project (including pictures and/or videos). These will be published on the Eurocircuits’s websites.

Note – All blogs will be published on the Eurocircuits’s websites and on the Eurocircuits’s social media platforms. In the Eurocircuits’s Newsletter they are mentioned and linked in a dedicated section of the Newsletter, providing a lot of exposure for the Team.
