Satori 2011

Satori is a study tour organized by the student association Thor of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven, University of Technology.

What does Satori mean?

Satori stands for Study tour Acquainting Thor with ORiental Innovation and is a Japanese Buddhist term for "enlightenment". When one has reached "satori", he is in a state of deeper understanding. Satori has a deep and positive meaning in Japanese culture and reflects what we thrive to achieve with our project.

What is the theme of the study tour?

The theme of the tour is "sustainability and innovation". The world is currently dealing with many issues such as global temperature changes and rising energy prices. Sustainability is therefore a much debated topic. In the past, global warming was not yet an issue and technology for a green world did not exist. Innovation is now needed to make our world green again.
