Innovative ideas need to be developed into viable business models that generate sustainable value so they can thrive and have an impact. For this reason, EIT InnoEnergy Master School integrates a strong emphasis on innovation and business skills in addition to technical training. These ingredients are fundamental for successful entrepreneurial initiatives!
Although innovation isn’t like a math formula which can be memorised and applied, innovative thinking is a skill which can be trained and developed. During EIT InnoEnergy study journey, students are provided with several opportunities to think of new business ideas or contribute to emerging energy technology fields. As a recent EIT InnoEnergy alumna, I worked with a total of five different entrepreneurial projects during my two years of studies! These projects have pushed me and my team mates to identify pain points and problems in the energy sector and search for new, potential solutions or value propositions.
