I.E.C.T. – SUMMER SCHOOL GOES ONLINE
Save the date:
17th – 27th August – detailed timetable see below!
The I.E.C.T. – Summer School will be held online this year.
The successful programme is known for attracting the best talents from all over the world. To enable cross-border cooperation and to promote the international spirit, the entrepreneur programme will leap into the online world – without neglecting its most important characteristics: promoting early start-ups and gaining an unique social capital.
Whether offline or online – you can be sure that you will be part of the I.E.C.T. – Hermann Hauser family afterwards!
What participants can expect
The Summer School participants are offered a varied and equally instructive programme: This includes workshops with renowned experts from our international network and mentorships in small groups to achieve the highest possible learning curve. In this way, the participants’ individual needs can be addressed and their learning process can be advanced. Furthermore, the groups are characterized by a strong peer-to-peer learning atmosphere, i.e., the participants are not only supervised by their mentor but also support each other.
Do you have an idea that you think has market potential and need support in its implementation? Are you working on a research topic where you see potential for commercialisation?
Then apply now for the I.E.C.T. – Summer School 2020 and turn your idea into reality! The application process is open until July 15th.
Our Fellowship programme
Start-ups, while excellent in their field, can benefit in many ways from cooperation with established companies. This includes the opportunity to access an extensive network and many years of experience in the industry. For these reasons, we would like to offer entrepreneurs and start-ups a platform that should lead to an intensive and successful exchange.
Your fellowship holder pays the participation fee. You also benefit from the company’s many years of experience and its network. More about this here.
