welcomes the European Innovation Academy

Drawing on the experience of the university summer schools organized with the top establishments of Silicon Valley such as Stanford and Berkeley, the European Innovation Academy (EIA) brings together 600 students from 80 countries to introduce them to entrepreneurship in the digital innovation sector. For three weeks they will be intensively trained and advised by around a hundred “mentors”, speakers and experts from Silicon Valley as well as by the most impressive panel of experts ever seen in Europe. The programme has been set up in collaboration with these renowned universities, as well as giants like Google and Microsoft. Around 100 innovative start-up projects will come into being in Nice between 3 and 22 July, 2016!  For further information
