The Journey 2016: Develop Your Own Climate Start-up in Just Five Weeks
Together with Climate-KIC, the CEN is co-hosting the 2016 Summer School “The Journey.”
Since 2010, “The Journey” has brought together students from various disciplines for a five-week Summer School. The participants travel to different locations within Europe and learn how to develop business concepts that address the challenges posed by climate change. Guided by professional coaches, they form teams, which in turn present their concepts to a jury of experts at the end of the five weeks.
Climate-KIC is an EU innovation initiative for climate protection technologies. Its chief goals include promoting young researchers and providing support for start-ups and other projects.
This year, for the first time a group of 40 students will take part in the Summer School at the CEN.
Hamburg (July 24 to August 6, 2016) – London – Birmingham
In the two weeks of the Summer School that the students spend in Hamburg, the focus will be on recognizing the current challenges of climate change, and on discussing key findings with professional researchers. In this regard, the CEN will share its expertise to help the students identify pressing problems and find new approaches to solving them. During this phase, the students will develop their initial ideas and build teams.
Speaker of Universität Hamburg:
In London the teams will flesh out their ideas into start-up concepts, which they will subsequently present to a jury of experts in Birmingham.
