The world is changing. The workplace is evolving. The way we find solutions must also be transformed. International Student Affairs (BIS) offers 25 Scholarships of €2,000 for UvA students applying for the INCiTE Summer School.
Update: due to the current global pandemic, there will not be an INCiTE summer school this year. We are looking forward to welcoming you in 2021!
From 7 to 20 July 2019, prepare to think outside the box. With the INCiTE Summer School, you'll work on an online Intercultural Competence and Entrepreneurship course before spending two weeks in Suzhou, China, learning about design thinking, social innovation and entrepreneurship.
You'll build a business model with a team from around the world to solve a global challenge, and pitch that solution to academics, local business and community leaders, and corporate sponsors.
