Two early registrants going to CONNECT and INNOVEIT
And the winners are … Ricardo from Lisbon and Love from Uppsala! These two graduates of EIT Health activities had their names drawn randomly from among all those who signed up to join the EIT Health Alumni Network by 5 July 2017.
Their prize is a trip to this year’s cross-KIC events, EIT Alumni CONNECT and INNOVEIT, taking place 15-17 October in Budapest.
Alumni CONNECT will be organised by a group of alumni from all EIT Knowledge and Information Communities (KICs). The group is developing a programme tailored to their own unusual situation. The event will be a unique opportunity to meet alumni from all six EIT KICs – EIT Digital, EIT InnoEnergy, EIT Climate, EIT Raw Material, EIT Food and EIT Health.
INNOVEIT 2017 combines the EIT Awards and the EIT Stakeholder Forum. This year the focus is on shaping innovation in Europe and consulting stakeholders on the EIT`s Strategic Innovation Agenda 2021-2027.
The contest providing these free trips was held to draw attention to the new EIT Health Alumni Network, but the real benefits of the network go well beyond a chance to win a trip. Along with job offers, mentoring activities and workshops, the EIT Health Alumni Network will soon provide an attractive platform for start-ups and newcomers to promote their businesses and get in touch with potential partners in their respective environments.
