The EIT Alumni CONNECT event is just around the corner! Seize this unique opportunity to expand your professional network by engaging with the broader EIT Alumni community in the charming city of Budapest.

Date: 14 October 2019

Location: Brody Studios, Budapest, Hungary

Connect, Collaborate, Innovate” with fellow entrepreneurs and like-minded alumni, as 130 select members of our Communities come together to share their experiences, knowledge and enthusiasm.

The deadline for this event has passed, we have selected 25 members of EIT RawMaterials Alumni who will represent our network in Budapest.

Alongside the many interactive networking sessions, a fantastic series of workshops awaits you, offering insights from the EIT’s Innovation Communities: InnoEnergy, Health, Digital, RawMaterials and Climate-KIC. Whether you want to sharpen your current skills, explore opportunities across sectors or meet like-minded professionals, you will find what you want – all under one roof!

This year, the event is themed around UN SDG 11. ‘Sustainable Cities and Communities’. Given the diverse nature of our community and our expertise in different fields, we believe this is a theme which all five Communities of the EIT Alumni network can approach in their own way, allowing us, as the collective EIT Alumni Community, to tackle this goal in a unique and multi-disciplinary manner.

Our question to participants is:
How can communities make cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable?

Join us to explore this topic, collaborate across sectors, and come together to work towards a more sustainable future!

In addition you will: 

→   find potential partners for future collaboration opportunities

→   take an active part in a variety of thought-provoking and challenging dialogues

→   gain valuable advice and insights from our keynote speakers

→  meet the EIT Alumni Board and representatives of other EIT communities and have a say in shaping the future of our community.
