16-21 August 2018. University of twente. the netherlands
The University of Twente was awarded the classification of best technical and the most entrepreneurial university of the Netherlands in 2017. As we have an amazing campus where students are encouraged to think out of the box and into the future, we have become Europe’s leading university in innovation and entrepreneurship. With our motto of High Tech, Human Touch we have a successful record of student driven real-world impact. This is due to the university’s extensive Innovation&Entrepreneurship ecosystem. From our student run makerspaces, to our start-up incubators, to our executive board, they all share the value of student driven change. The UT has developed many innovative approaches to education, innovation and entrepreneurship, and it is this knowledge we would love to share with other University Innovation Fellows.
With this 4-day event, we aim to provide participating UIFers with the experience of the University of Twente’s way of working, thinking and producing solutions and ideas. With the use of design thinking methodologies developed by our DesignLab, the UIFers will be equipped with artifacts and skills, which they can immediately use when they return to their own universities.
Registration will open the 22nd of January 09:00 PST (GMT-8), first come first serve. Only 30 spots are available so be sure to sign up fast! We will post a registration link on this page, as well as more information as the event comes closer.
