A 10 days bootcamp, hands-on experience where aspiring intra- and entrepreneurs can find out if their ideas are viable amongst other international students. This week is all about learning through the act of creating.

This course will not focus on offering knowledge 'ex cathedra' but will focus on cooperative, design thinking which will unleash your creativity in order to bring you from your idea to an innovative viable concept.

The pop-up school will be a mix of:
flipped classrooms
design thinking
short lectures to illustrate examples

You collaborate with international mentors to enjoy a full multidisciplinary-transnational experience. You will have a solid working concept that can be explored to go to market.

Staff members from partner institutes will participate and give tutorials, lectures and facilitate brainstorms and workshops about different topics.
