BORN FROM KNOWLEDGE
Because entrepreneurship and innovation are founded upon knowledge and learning. Born from Knowledge gathers a group of initiatives, based upon the actions of Students and Ideas, developed within the scope of the Web Summit.
Students - Web Summit will take place, for the fist time, in Lisbon, from November 7-10. Higher education students can enrol in the volunteer programme. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain work experience, take advantage of an impressive networking environment and attend Web Summit free. Volunteers are asked to complete three shifts, one shift per day. Shift times can vary but are usually between 5 to 6 hours.
Ideas - This is a national competition for innovative ideas from higher education students and post-doctoral researchers based upon their learning and scientific knowledge. The ideas must demonstrate creativity, innovation, and economic and financial viability.
There must be a visible link between the scientific and technologic dimension of the idea and social and cultural responsibility. The best ideas will be awarded tickets to Web Summit and access to a entrepreneurship and innovation programme provided by the National Innovation Agency (ANI). Submissions closed.
