The 5 main reasons to choose the EIT Digital Summer Schools
EIT Digital offers a portfolio of programmes to deepdive in emerging digital technologies and learn how to turn technology into business. 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 10 partner universities and 9 EU countries, all of which are academic leaders in the delivery of technical, and innovation and entrepreneurship education. External participants come from various backgrounds, including other students, Ph.D. candidates, and working professionals.
Participants learn how to develop different business models and are challenged by delivering their ideas. A pitch competition is organised at the end of the two-week program. Winners, willing to launch their startup, will be considered for the EIT Digital Open Innovation Factory.
In addition to learning and mastering their innovation and entrepreneurial skills, our participants enjoy many team building activities. Working in teams, forging bonds, and networking with likeminded individuals, are an essential part of our programmes. Activities vary from location to location, such as boat trips, zip-lines, sightseeing tours, etc. Further details are omitted, not to spoil the surprise!
