Summer Schools presentation

The Summer Schools provide an immersive experience in innovation with real business cases with themes aligned to our action lines in Digital Infrastructure, Digital Cities, Digital Industry, Digital Wellbeing and Digital Finance. We welcome attendees from industry, academia and research institutes.

Limited place

Summer Schools are mandatory for the on-campus EIT Digital Master School students, but a limited number of places are also available for academia, researchers and professionals who want to spend two-weeks on an intensive course to hone both their technical knowledge and ability to innovate.

During the Summer School you will:

· assess the impact of ICT technologies and innovations, markets and stakeholders

· explore how to convert ideas into business opportunities and marketable solutions

· perform a business planning process

· understand user-centricity, business life cycles, global market trends, industry value chains, market segments, IPR issues, financial and risk-related issues

· improve personal presentation and communications skills, decision-making and leadership competencies

Experience

According to an industry attendee last year, the experience of working together with students at a Summer School is very valuable: “Students have a fresh way of looking at things. For them, the sky is the limit. They don’t hold back their thinking yet. In a professional life, you forget this way of thinking, you hold back to fit in a company culture. Another side effect was that I found new interns for my company. These students have a technical background and the business skills we are looking for.”
