The EIT Alumni CONNECT event will bring together more than 100 students and alumni from Climate-KIC, EIT ICT Labs and KIC InnoEnergy, and gives the opportunity to:
- share their knowledge and experiences and discuss their entrepreneurial ideas with fellow students/alumni in a cross-disciplinary way;
- contribute to the development of the EIT Alumni Community by developing ideas and proposing ways to implement them jointly;
- find partners for exchange of ideas and potential collaboration (e.g. start-ups searching for people with specific skills).
Here is the draft agenda.
The EIT Alumni Connect Event is an integral part of INNOVEIT2015 – the EIT Innovation Forum. KIC Students and alumni are invited to participate in the entire event from 5 to7 May and will have the opportunity to:
- meet and discuss their ideas with successful innovators and entrepreneurs, including EIT Awards nominees, as well as EU and national policy makers and innovation experts;
- meet and network with the EIT Community, including the new EIT Health and EIT Raw Materials communities;
- feed-back their ideas and opinions on the EIT`s plan and strategy for the future, especially at the Stakeholder Forum (day 3).
The EIT will organise travel and accommodation for a total of 114 students and alumni from Climate-KIC, EIT ICT Labs and KIC InnoEnergy, who currently study in an EIT labelled/KIC Master or PHD programme or have graduated from an EIT labelled/KIC Master or PhD programme. The list of Master and PhD programmes can be found here.
- are motivated to contribute to the development of the EIT Alumni Community;
- are eager to collaborate with students and alumni from other KICs;
- would like to feed back their ideas and opinions on the EIT’s plan and strategy.
