EIT InnoEnergy just gathered its extensive ecosystem in one place for a thrilling two-day event! Excited to be all together for the first time in two years, the 300+ students came from all over Europe to meet with experts, industry, alumni and enjoy some fun time with their peers.
The event had many interactive activities, such as team building and exploring the beautiful city of Stockholm, along with workshops on career development and entrepreneurship.
Students attended inspiring sessions with EIT InnoEnergy execs and were able to tap the leading experts during a panel discussion on building a carbon-free future through storage. Juan Franco Canepa, Master’s in Nuclear Energy year-2 student, shared: “One of the most insightful parts of the event was the interview session with Diego Pavia and Elena Bou regarding how EIT InnoEnergy can support entrepreneurial ideas from the alumni.”
And all eyes were on the grand finale of the Battle of Green Talent – where the finalist gave their final pitch. As Juan said, “It was an amazing experience to see peers pitching creative ideas to important investors. Events like this one spark the students’ interest in thinking creatively and encourage them to transform ideas into tangible and profitable solutions. These great events set these master programmes apart from other universities.”
