Each Summer School programme is themed around major societal and industrial challenges in the global digital economy: Digital Cities, Digital Finance, Digital Industry, Digital Tech and Digital Wellbeing.
Summer Schools programmes are held at several locations throughout Europe, during which participants from different backgrounds immerse themselves in real business case studies originating from our EIT Digital extensive ecosystem made of accelerators, startups and network of industrial partners.
Participants will work with the international, high-skilled, cohort of students from the EIT Digital Master School coming from 18 partner universities and 9 EU member states, all of which are academic leaders in the delivery of technical, and innovation and entrepreneurship education.
