EIT Digital Summer School on Digital Platforms for Smart Cities

The EIT Digital summer school held at Aalto University on 14-25 August, 2023 aims to create a better understanding of why platforms are key in shaping economies and societies and how platforms create such societal and business impact. After participating you will be better equipped to become the digital changemaker that will shape both the firms you create or work for during your career. 

"Participants will master the ability to differentiate between traditional businesses and platforms. They will acquire knowledge about key success factors and building blocks of multi-sided platforms that create networked markets, and why such platform business models have been so competitive in tech and non-tech industries alike. Moreover, participants will utilise concepts and models to create and assess platform business model entrants in cases provided by cities."

The Summer School is open to young professionals as well as Bachelor or Master students, who want to deep-dive in emerging digital technologies and learn how to turn these technologies into business. As the programme has a focus on business innovation and entrepreneurship, there is no need to have specific technical backgrounds or any coding knowledge to join our Summer School.
