The programme includes lectures, presentations, group work and hands—on activities. The Summer School
program is built around students working on commercialization of technologies and products in Europe. The
technologies or products that the students work on are provided by case companies operating in some of the
industries covered by the Raw materials KIC.
The overall program consists of 4 parts
1. Innovation and Entrepreneurship prestudy module. The module is implemented based on the I&E Online
learning material of EIT Digital. Workload 25hours, 1-2 calender weeks.
2. Case prestudy. The backbone of the studies is formed by the commercialization cases presented by the
case companies. In the prestudy, the students analyze their local/domestic market for five of the cases.
Workload 25 hours, 2-3 calender weeks.
3. One week intensive study session at Aalto. Based on the customer and market input gathered in the Case
prestudy, the student teams define initial solution to the company cases.
4. Concept validation and final report. In this phase, the students do validation of the concept with potential
customers in their local/domestic market. The results of the validations are compiled by each team into
final report to the case company
