Have you ever been to Stanford? Or Berkeley? Well, I haven’t, but I have met some of their professors along the way, so when we got the news that Beta-i was bringing the European Innovation Academy to Lisbon, I was thrilled.
Why? Because this means that this summer some of the best professors of Stanford and Berkeley, and some experienced mentors from Google, will be in Lisbon to teach 400 students from all over the world about technology and entrepreneurship.
During this 3 week program, university students will have to come together in teams to create their own projects in areas such as big data, internet of things, 3D printing, mobile applications, or artificial intelligence. Throughout the program they will have classes and mentoring from some of the top professors and mentors in the world.
The European Innovation Academy was officially launched yesterday at Santander Totta and it will take place in Lisbon and Cascais, in partnership with Beta-i, Cascais City Council, Nova University, and Santander Totta. The first edition will be from July 16th until August 4th.
