EIT Digital Academy Summer Schools
Just like last summer, The EIT Digital Academy educates about 300 participants, both professionals, and EIT Digital Master School students between their first and second year of study, on making business on new emerging technologies. Each of the ten two-week Summer Schools handles a topic in the field of Digital Wellbeing (Eindhoven and Lisbon), Digital Infrastructure (Trento and Stockholm for Big Data Analytics and IoT and business Transformation), Digital Finance (Budapest), Digital Industry (Munich and Helsinki) and Digital Cities (Rennes and Talinn). The participants are exposed to the latest digital developments given to them by respected keynote speakers and learn how to transform technology into business.
Learn how to move fast. That is one of the takeaways that IT Project manager Peter Navrén is taking back to his company Rexel in Sweden from the EIT Digital Summer School on the Internet of Things and Business Transformation. “You do not need to sit in a conference room for months to think through a business idea.” Navrén learned how to do it in just two weeks.
