On 26-29 September 2022, EC2U students will gather in Iași 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. The special topic will be “Social Innovation” this time. 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 Iași, Romania, together with other students from across Europe.
We are aiming for a truly international and transdisciplinary event.
