Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summer School in Rennes

The EIT Digital Department within the University of Rennes 1 in France will be holding the third edition of its summer between the 29th June and the 10th July 2020. During these 2 weeks, MA and Phd students from around the world, and who are focusing their studies on Business-related topics, meet in Rennes to discuss innovative concepts, work on entrepreneurial projects and build new ideas.

This 2-week summer school is exceptionally interesting for those students who are looking to gain experience in an international context and who want to do something valuable with their time this summer. Basically, your students can get to spend two weeks in a gorgeous French city with real Entrepreneurs, and other like-minded students sharing knowledge creatively as well as examples of best practice.

Speaking about this programme, Prof. Alvaro Pina Stranger, organiser of the EIT Digital Summer School in Rennes, told us that, “throughout these two weeks, students will have the opportunity to, not only participate in academic lectures, but also learn from industry and company professionals. With this experience, students can develop real business case studies originating from different innovation activities, startups and network of industrial partners.”

In fact, this is another interesting feature about this summer school. “An important aspect of the Summer School is the interaction between students and entrepreneurs. In this context, we have invited top keynote speakers from the local innovation ecosystem so that they can share their vision, experiences, and, specially, the technological challenges that our students should take up in order to positively impact our society”, Prof. Pina Stranger continues.

This two-week programme also has an interesting social programme. Students will also see the cultural side of Rennes as well as its gorgeous surroundings such as Saint Malo and the Mont Saint Michel, a fascinating historical city close to the beach.
