It is time for one of our favourite events of the year - the EIT Alumni CONNECT 22! The EIT Alumni CONNECT is the annual event of the EIT Alumni Network and the leading event that brings together graduates, entrepreneurs, and representatives from all EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
This year, our celebration is an integral part of the INNOVEIT Weeks 2022, emphasising the power of young leaders as key drivers of change, who are jointly shaping the future of Europe for the Next Generation EU. The programme will include discussions in alignment with relevant EU initiatives such as: 2022 European Year of Youth and the Conference on Future of Europe. CONNECT’s target audience is primarily the EIT alumni, therefore in September we will focus on start- up founders, digital natives, aspiring entrepreneurs, and prospect alumni.. The event will be hybrid, all sessions being streamlined world-wide from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and expecting over 200 attendees from the wider EIT ecosystem.
This exciting event will be hosted on Saturday September 17th 2022 in Budapest, Hungary. The event will be hybrid, all sessions being streamlined world-wide from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and expecting over 200 attendees from the wider EIT ecosystem. Selected participants might be eligible for free accommodation for 16th to 18th September in Budapest, covered by event organisers at dedicated hotels, on twin-room sharing basis (e.g. you'd be sharing room with another participant of your gender)*.
For those of you who who took part in the EIT Alumni CONNECT in the past years, make sure you tell others what a great opportunity this is to network with Alumni outside of your sector. For those of you who couldn't make it, check out our photo album from 2019!
