SOLID started as an Honors Academy project at the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e), which is located on campus surrounded by other start-ups, researchers, and other student teams. A suitable location for an innovative young group of students considering the TU/e is part of the Brainport region which has been on the forefront of technological innovation in the Netherlands for years.
Students take time off their normal courses and activities to spend it on SOLID. Every year, the entire board and most of the general team is replaced by new students as former members move on. This year there are four board members and fifteen part timers.
