On 4-7 April 2022, EC2U students will gather in Pavia to celebrate transdisciplinary innovation, intercultural teamwork, and entrepreneurial experiences.

The Entrepreneurial Week will take you on an inspiring entrepreneurial journey. Students of all disciplines are welcome to join in the adventure. Along the way, you will collaborate on new ideas in international and multidisciplinary teams. There will be workshops led by international experts, and entrepreneurs will share their experience and advice. Capture and reflect on what you learn, your experiences, your ideas and your inspiration in a learning journal.

Explore the vivid city of Pavia, Italy, and the hills of its surrounding wine country together with other students from across Europe.
