The experience at EIT RawMaterials was nothing short of transformative. Beyond the structured academic curriculum, it ingrained in me a multifaceted skill set - gaining a special academic curriculum from a double degree in the advanced and sustainable materials, critical thinking, networking with the researchers and the industry, pitching idea, to collaborative research skills and commercialisation experience.
