CORE's story is a journey of innovation, education, and engineering that began with a vision to transform waste management. Our roots lie firmly in the student community of Eindhoven University of Technology, where a group of forward-thinking students came together with a shared belief: waste management could be smarter, more sustainable, and more eco-friendly.

As we embarked on our mission, we quickly realized that innovation knows no bounds. We opened our doors to students not just from the university but also from Avans, Fontys, and Summa, creating a diverse and passionate community dedicated to finding sustainable solutions to pressing environmental challenges.

Our evolution as an organization reflects our commitment to education at all levels. What began as a project within the university (WO) expanded to include students from universities of applied sciences (HBO), and today, we proudly include vocational education students (MBO) as well. Our dedication to fostering the next generation of innovators remains unwavering.

Early on, we started with projects like FOURNOS and MAGMA, which were born from the IVER project—a testament to our ability to translate innovative ideas into practical applications. These early successes laid the foundation for our journey, inspiring us to take on more ambitious projects like TEMNOS, where we harness artificial intelligence to transform waste streams, and HYPERIOS, where we develop autonomous inspection robots for critical infrastructure.

Our story is one of growth, collaboration, and a relentless pursuit of innovative solutions. Join us as we continue to Innovate, Educate, and Engineer for a cleaner, more eco-friendly world. CORE: Pioneering Sustainable Waste Solutions.
