Career opportunities

Participants are encouraged to observe and evaluate familiar processes from a broader perspective while working their everyday jobs, thus developing their careers.

The program, along the main thematic line, also stands for developing participants’ competencies in creating new products, innovation management, intellectual property protection, and change management.

Multiple networking opportunities are another reason to join the Academy’s community. Participants get to meet and interact with Europe’s top academics and entrepreneurs working in different fields of the blue economy.

Since continuity is crucial for a community of professionals to emerge, participants can return (for free) to the program in the subsequent year. This strengthens relationships and trust among a core of creative, enterprising professionals.
