Schedule an online meeting to discuss ambitious idea

Do you have a great impactful idea but no clue if it is eligible for funding? If your idea meets the below guidelines, we invite you to get in touch with us.

  • Your idea has a great potential to positively impact society;
    • is innovative, is organised / implemented for the first time,
    • has a large meaningful outreach,
    • is driven by knowledge and technology at TU Delft.
  • The idea is driven fully by student involvement and commitment.
  • You are registered as a student at TU Delft.
  • Your idea is currently non-profit (you don't have the intention to use the FAST grant to bring your product to the market while aiming for profit).

If you are not sure if you meet the above criteria, don't hesitate to contact us by sending us an email (in which you can also ask us to schedule a call). Simply let us know what you have in mind, why you think you might have an Ambitious Idea (keeping the above guidelines in mind) and we will take a look at all the options we can offer you.

All submitted Ambitious Ideas will be reviewed by the Executive Grant Committee (EGC). The EGC consists of 9 members, each from different faculties and departments at TU Delft.
