SOLID is an ambitious student team of Eindhoven University of Technology that aims to enable access to clean and renewable energy for anyone, at any time. With 22 interdisciplinary students, we create an ecosystem for iron fuels as circular energy carriers. To do so, SOLID participates in multiple consortia and works with partners to develop both the technology and the ecosystem. Being part of SOLID means being part of an innovative and most enjoyable community. In our journey towards making iron fuel a success, we lay the foundation for a sustainable future.
The team has 6 different subteams you can join:
Within these subteams we have different type of functions; fulltime (32-40h), 3-day-parttime (24h), part-time (12h). Within these hours we include our weekly teamevening! During this teamevening we eat together, update each other about the progress of the subteams, play games and have some drinks.

The Subteams of SOLID
From every sub team, one or two fulltime members represent the sub team in the Management Team (MT). The MT has the responsibility that SOLID runs as a whole, ranging from managing the team’s day-to -day activities, well-being of our members and managing financial budgets, to setting a strategy for the coming years and defining new projects. They are in charge and run the business!
The technical team is in charge of the development of technical products to reach the mission and vision of SOLID. This means they design the installations, build, improve, and carry out experiments with them. The T-team is also concerned with investigating how the technology can be scaled up and making sure the entire team has a good technical understanding of the technology. This year the technical team is separated into two groups: one group is working on the Steam Iron project and the other group is working on the Living Lab Project.
This subteam develops (as the name suggests), the business side of SOLID! They investigate where and how the technologies SOLID is developing can best be implemented. They also contact companies and other parties to assist or help develop our technical product. Another important focus of the team is the long-term impact and the requirements for a sustainable ecosystem of the technology.
This subteam is responsible for the marketing and PR of SOLID, and therefore our external perception. They are responsible for all external events, visual means to introduce SOLID, our corporate identity, our social media appearance and the website.
This subteam is responsible for internal events within SOLID. HR is responsible for the fun team evenings every Wednesday. During these evenings team updates take place, dinner is made and the team enjoys fun activities. They organize the team weekend at the beginning of the academic year and a big party at the end of the year! SOLID also thinks that personal development is important, therefore the HR team provides many skill workshops.
The finance team looks at the needs and requirements for each subteam and based on that, they make a fair budget so that each subteam can meet their goals. In addition, we work with grants, and the finance team also has a number of responsibilities for this, such as the applications, distributions and quarterly reports. It is very educational to see how the finance of a student team works. It is almost a company!
