EIT Alumni

The EIT Alumni Community is a community for all EIT students and alumni, regardless of what KIC you belong to, what area you specialise in, or what part of the world you live in. Be part of this exciting community, find opportunities from all over Europe (and beyond), and learn, create and be a change agent!

Through EIT labelled and KIC entrepreneurial education and training programmes, students acquire the entrepreneurial skills and competences which are essential to tackle the societal challenges of our time and to drive future change. As future entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, innovators, policy makers and change agents, EIT graduates have a high potential to contribute to spurring innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe and globally. To leverage this potential it is vital that the entrepreneurial aptitude created during their education period is continuously nurtured to “keep the fire burning” - putting the acquired skills into practice and developing them further. An effective way of cultivating the entrepreneurial drive is to connect with peers and like-minded people.

The EIT Alumni and students from EIT-labelled educational programs gather during EIT Connect events (the last one took place 24 & 25 April 2016 in Budapest - check out the gallery here) to contribute to the development of the EIT Alumni Community by developing ideas and proposing ways to implement them jointly. The events are also a unique opportunity for sharing knowledge and experiences, discussing entrepreneurial ideas with fellow students/alumni in a cross-disciplinary way and finding partners for exchange of ideas and potential collaboration.
