As EIT InnoEnergy students and recent graduates, we were invited to join the Career Impact Challenges during Enlit Europe Milan 2021. Not only were we lucky to attend the conference in person and enjoy the beautiful city of Milan, but also had the chance to solve challenges from leading companies in the industry. The challenges were presented by some of EIT InnoEnergy-supported start-ups as well as companies within its network, namely Woon Duurzaam, McKinsey Energy Insights, Volytica diagnostics, Sylfen and Siemens Energy.
Part of EIT InnoEnergy Career Centre offering is the Career Impact Challenges. These take place during ENLIT, an energy conference that highlights the change we need to make to ensure the brightest of futures. However, Enlit is not only an event, but a community, that for 365 days a year collaborates and innovates to solve the most pressing issues in the energy industry. Attending the conference face to face was a great opportunity for all of us who are looking for an internship, want to apply to our first job or simply are curious to identify the industry trends. It is an excellent way to network and understand first-hand what the energy transition calls for and involves!
