Our main objective at WTUN is to promote collaboration between technology universities worldwide, to collectively help solve major world challenges and educate the next generation of world leaders. In support of this objective, we like to enhance the attendance at our annual Congress, and we have, therefore, a policy of making available free attendance, covering fees at the congress including accommodation, for one representative per institution.

We would, of course, be very happy if you also wish to bring other academics and staff, to contribute and enjoy the Congress. There is no fee for WTUN members to attend the Congress however travel costs and additional delegate accommodation are at the responsibility of the member institution.

Accommodation costs: The cost of rooms at Augustiner Kloster are 89(single) or 99(double, single occupancy)Euro per person per night.

It is suggested that delegates arrive in Germany on either Sunday 8 October or morning of Monday 9 October (see programme here – 2023 Congress.)

If you are arriving by train, we recommend that you get off at Erfurt’s main train station, which is served by regional trains as well as IC and ICE trains. As the Thuringia ICE hub, Erfurt is very well connected to numerous regions in Germany. You can reach us from the main train station by taxi or tram on line 1 (towards Europaplatz) or line 5 (towards Zoopark) and exit at the “Augustinerkloster” stop.
