Become a Partner

Idwer de Vries - Team Manager

Our team reaches thousands of students via our competing teams and showcase events. Becoming a partnership and contributing to our growth is a unique opportunity to reach ambitious and talented students, especially when an IT-background is preferred. As the centre of Esports research in the Netherlands, our events generate exposure and showcase the innovativeness and competitiveness of the University of Twente and our partners.

So far in our first year, we have successfully established ourselves as the team specialized in Esports related research and even with COVID-19 we have achieved much:

First-year achievements

We connected 31 ambitious UT and Saxion students to work together as ETT team members

We established a serious gaming research partnership with the Royal Dutch Navy

We formed Esports teams in five different game genres where we compete on the highest national Esports level, currently ranking first in three of the five competitions.

We reach 200 – 500 students each time our competitive games are livestreamed. Our games are streamed between 2 to 4 times a week!

The social media of our team has grown to over 250 followers within 6 months and is still growing with each new event and win!

The team is currently designing an Esports arena on the UT, which when accepted and constructed will become the second competitive Esports facility in the Netherlands

We established a research partnership with the UT Esports lab and the BMS-lab and with them we organize a yearly Esports research demo event. This year in collaboration with Youtube influencer Gamemeneer (1.2 million subscribers)!

Become a frontrunner in Esports research

Joint research projects
Connecting talented UT and Saxion students with people from our partners, we can work together on a similar research project where our team’s expertise and knowledge of Esports and data analysis is combined with the experience of the partner.

Research collaboration
Our team can work on specific projects based on the partners’ preference, similar to how the qualities of Esports are applied to the training of Navy Officers, a similar Esports oriented research project can be executed on the partner’s topic.
