Green IT and IT for Green: Innovative Ventures for Social and Environmental Sustainability

Note: This Summer School programme is fully booked.

Join us for a transformative experience at the EIT Digital Summer School 2024, themed "Green IT and IT for Green: Innovative Ventures for Social and Environmental Sustainability." This unique two-week program, running from January to December 2024, is designed to immerse EIT Digital Master's students in the world of greentech entrepreneurship.

Our program offers an unparalleled opportunity to develop crucial digital and entrepreneurial skills necessary for creating sustainable tech ventures. It's more than just a learning experience; it's a journey from ideation to execution, where your initial ideas are honed into potential startups with real-world impact.

The Summer School unfolds in three intensive stages. Initially, you'll submit an Initial Business Concept (IBC) in June, focused on Green IT, which industry experts will review, providing invaluable feedback. Then, during the Summer School in July, you will engage in an intensive training program covering everything from problem identification to strategic benchmarking, market analysis, fundraising, and growth strategies. This phase is not just about learning; it's about doing. You will refine your venture ideas with guidance from industry experts and select the top concepts for further development.

But it doesn't end there. After the Summer School, in November, those aiming to advance their projects can apply to Incube, our local incubator for students. This provides a pathway to take your project to the next level, with potential funding and support.

Located in Rennes, a hub of digital innovation, our Summer School merges cultural richness with a vibrant tech scene. The city is just 90 minutes from Paris and close to Mont Saint-Michel, blending educational rigor with cultural exploration.

The program also includes a variety of social events like a boat trip, a ropes course, and visits to famous French landmarks to ensure a well-rounded experience. You will not only gain knowledge and skills but also form lasting connections with peers and industry experts.

Our Summer School aligns with the Digital Tech focus area of EIT Digital, addressing key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It's not just an educational program; it's a step towards creating a more sustainable world through technology.

We are committed to providing a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience that prepares you for the challenges of the entrepreneurial world. By the end of the program, you will be equipped with the tools, knowledge, and connections to make a real impact.

Join us at the EIT Digital Summer School 2024. Transform your ideas into ventures that matter. Shape a sustainable future with Green IT.
