Building the Future of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology

Innovation Workshop 2013

The second edition of the Innovation Workshop, hosted by the MIT Skoltech Initiative began on August 5th. This year's edition includes participants from Skoltech coming from a variety of countries including Kazakstan, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, and Pakistan, and two MIT students. During the workshop, participants work closely with MIT faculty and contributors from MIT's innovation ecosystem to learn how to combine theory and practice with technology to solve real-world problems.

The participants will be working seven days a week on the curriculum that consists of hands-on projects, lectures, and team building activities, all within three thematic areas; Information, Energy, and the new addition, Biomedicine Technologies. At the conclusion of the 4 weeks, each team will present their innovation project to an audience made up of experts from MIT’s innovation ecosystem.
