The NITIM graduate school is an international PhD school that is focusing on topics in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation and technology management as well as information and communication technologies.

The NITIM summer school is organized once a year in cooperation with the ICE/IEEE ITMC conference and thus takes place at changing locations – e.g. 2016 in Trondheim (Norway), 2017 in Madeira (Portugal) and 2018 in Konstanz (Germany). In 2019, it will be held also in Sophia AntipolisFrance.

What can you expect from the 3 days Summer School? The NITIM Graduate School is a nonprofit organization that is supported by a large faculty consisting of professors with various backgrounds from all over the world. The faculty and the attending PhD peers will provide you with valuable feedback on your research project and help you to progress with the work. Furthermore, you will have the possibility to strengthen your academic network at the social events and throughout the whole summer school.
