Do you have the knowledge and experience to want to be part of a team that develops an idea that uses Earth observation data? Challenge yourself, apply and become part of an interdisciplinary team that goes through the intensive Startech program.
Startech aims at coaching students towards the spirit of innovation. 20-25 selected students from all UNIVERSEH partners will be mixed to create five multidisciplinary teams with broad knowledge and competence. All teams will select an idea that uses Earth observation data (e.g. a new application to help to monitor the gas pollution in the seas).
The Startech program is designed as an intensive one week experience; they should develop their idea into a marketable prototype/product/project. During the week, teams go through lectures, interact with business coaches and experts to build a set of crucial skills when creating new projects, new research directions or a new company. Lectures include creativity, business models, canvas, lean startup, IP, pitching, etc. Throughout the process, students are accompanied by teachers and by several experts. At the end of the training, the students pitch their project in front of a jury.
