The language of technology often relates to business as English to Russian. If you do not know one of these languages, your business is lost. Luckily, you can learn how to use new emerging technologies at one of the 16 EIT Digital Summer Schools that will take place this summer in 13 European locations. You can apply for it now.
The two-week EIT Digital Academy Summer Schools combine state-of-the-art excellence in key digital technologies with expertise in innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E). Attendees immerse themselves in real business case studies originating from within EIT Digital's pan-European ecosystem of scaleups, industrial and academic partners and research companies.
The Summer Schools are one of the ways in which EIT Digital is working to make Europe a leading player in the digital economy, says Roberto Prieto, director of the EIT Digital Academy. "Our Summer Schools offer our attendees the chance to master the digital mindset that companies need to acquire in order to be competitive."
The Summer Schools are open to researchers, industry professionals, master and PhD students and others who want to deep dive into emerging technologies and learn how to apply them in business situations. The Summer school is a mandatory part in the EIT Digital Master School. This means that for sure you will work with the brightest engineering minds in Europe. Prieto: “The beauty is that the talented students learn to master the language of business while in at the same time businesspeople learn to master the language of technology. They learn each other's language, which makes the EIT Digital Summer School highly successful.”
Each Summer School is themed around one of the five areas in which EIT Digital sees major societal and industrial challenges as well as opportunities for Europe to take a leadership position in the global digital economy. These areas are: Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Wellbeing, Digital Tech, and Digital Finance.
Besides the educational journey, the sixteen Summer School also offer an opportunity to visit foreign cities as they are held in eleven locations across Europe: Lisbon, Eindhoven, Stockholm, Budapest, Rennes, Tallinn, Trento, Ljubljana, Munich, Bologna and Helsinki.
The deadline for applications is 15 May 2019. The first school opens on 30 June and the last finishes on 17 August.
