First Open Space Studio Conference with ENTECH graduates – still some seats available

On 12 October 2015, the twenty-two KIC InnoEnergy Energy Technologies (ENTECH) master graduates of 2015 will convene to showcase their latest achievements in research and to continue co-creating new solutions within Sustainable Energy. This first Open Space Studio Conference is taking place in Ettlingen, near Karlsruhe (Germany). We still have some free seats for industry representatives interested in getting to know our graduates and experiencing a co-creation process with them.

Similar to the format of TED Talks, students will present their ideas and response to How do we be a Game Changer in Sustainable Energy today? The five central themes of the conference will be:

  • Renewable Energy and Energy Storage
  • Decentralised Power Supply and Grid Integration
  • Energy in Buildings
  • Energy Economics and Informatics
  • Thermal Power Plants

More information about the event can be found in the Open Space Studio Conference Invitation. If you are interested in joining our students, please email Cornelia Schwenk:


About the ENTECH graduates

Trained by the best technical engineering and business universities in Europe (e.g. KIT, IST, Uppsala, G-INP), the 2015 graduates originally came to KIC InnoEnergy from all over the world, invited for their brilliance and strength of character.

“These guys are wired differently, thinking of innovation for business impact, growth and competitiveness, instead of innovation just for technology.” Diego Pavia, CEO of KIC InnoEnergy

After two years of living in different European countries, these graduates have experienced the Open Space Studio, which is a two-year journey integrated into the Master Programme ENTECH. The Open Space studio is designed to prepare students for facing up to European challenges in sustainable energy and developing solutions that meet them. It is a learning process, complementary to the technological and business know-how which is already built into the schedule of the ENTECH Programme, to master personal, social and innovation capabilities and co-creation resources. It prepares students to act as change agents in their future energy business environment and supports them to develop their individual and collective co-creative potential as “Game Changer“ towards a new energy future landscape.
