What are Entrepreneurial Weeks?

The EC2U Entrepreneurial Academy will spark your curiosity for innovation and give you an awareness for entrepreneurial opportunities in a European context. Students of all disciplines are welcome since entrepreneurial competences apply to all disciplines and all spheres of life. We apply the broad definition: Entrepreneurship is when you act upon opportunities and ideas – and transform them into value for othersIf you want to know more about entrepreneurship, start with easy-to-access online lectures. You might also sign up for the simulation game to boost your intercultural teamworking skills.

In a second phase, you can apply for one of the Entrepreneurial Weeks hosted by one of the seven EC2U universities. EC2U students come together for a few days to celebrate transdisciplinary innovation, intercultural teamwork, and entrepreneurial experiences.

Three Entrepreneurial Weeks are planned:

  • at the beginning of April 2022 – hosted by the University of Pavia (Italy)
  • in Fall 2022 – hosted by the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași (Romania)
  • in Spring 2023 – hosted by the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena (Germany)

You increase your chances of being selected for a travel grant by previously taking part in the online learning opportunities.

Follow-up activities: The alumni of the Entrepreneurial Week can participate in follow-up activities. Virtual alumni meet-ups help cultivate students’ networks and create a supportive community for the first entrepreneurial steps.
