SAVE-IT network activities

The purpose of the SAVE-IT network activities is to prepare the students for their future profession and to form strong personal networks between the students. The activities also enable cooperations and exchanges between the participating companies and universities.

The SAVE-IT network activities includes workshops with specific themes, organized visits at participating companies, and international visits at renowned universities and companies. Special emphasis on education in non-technical skills, such as leadership, project management and team building, is given. The SAVE-IT PhD students are also offered participation in activities organized by the SSF-supported network ARTES and the EU supported network ARTIST2.

Participating PhD students, supervisors and mentors are allowed to freely participate the SAVE-IT network activities. New SAVE-IT network activities will be announced on this web-page and by regular email send-outs.
