The MIT Portugal Program is helping to organize the next International Workshop on Innovating, to take place at the MIT campus (Cambridge, Mass.) on June 12-16. The event is aimed at students and researchers who are planning to start entrepreneurial activities in the near future, and young entrepreneurs who have started or are in the process of starting their business.
The MIT International Workshop on Innovating is a residential, hands-on program focused on helping participants understand how to conceive and develop solid and demonstrable end-points for technology innovation. The workshop aims to develop an understanding of innovation as real-world problem-solving, and sums our experience teaching this topic across the globe. As the workshop progresses we will work together with you to help you connect the larger objectives for innovating with the specific objectives of various entrepreneurial recipes born out of marketing and product design that have become recently popular.
Students that are interested can submit their application online. The review will start after 11:59 pm EDT on April 30, 2017. Although applications submitted no later than 11:59 pm EDT on May 5 might be also reviewed, early applications will be given priority. Due to the limited number of seats, we will not be able to accept all applications. Accepted candidates will be notified by May 12th.
This workshop is supported by the MIT Portugal Program. Accepted applicants who are currently part of the MIT Portugal Program or are alumni may qualify to receive a subsidy, covering the workshop fee and possibly other expenses.Best regards,
