CONNECT 2020 takes place on 28 & 29 November

EIT Alumni CONNECT is the annual meetup of our EIT Alumni Community.

Over 150 Alumni will come together on 28 and 29 November to connect, build partnerships, co-create on projects and work together to build, and develop the EIT Alumni Community.

This year’s theme is Responsible Consumption and Production and how EIT Alumni can address it. It is about doing more and better with less. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency, and promoting sustainable lifestyles. Alongside interactive networking session, a series of workshops will offer to our members unique insights from external organisations and from members of the Alumni Communities: The CommUnity by EIT InnoEnergy, EIT Health Alumni, EIT Digital Alumni, EIT RawMaterials Alumni and EIT Climate-KIC Alumni.

Whether you want to sharpen your current skills, explore opportunities across sectors or meet like-minded professionals, you will find what you want - all online.
