So ends Week 1 of Innovation Workshop and the 287 new students joining the Skoltech community from across the world, representing over twenty countries, no longer need consider themselves new. This is the first ever Innovation Workshop to be held entirely at Skoltech’s new campus, which with its vast size (over 130,000 square meters) has proven to be the perfect venue.

Innovation Workshop began with the GALA Opening and keynote speakers Katerina Lengold, Charles Cantor, and Karima Nigmatullina. During the week, multiple parallel Quick Success workshops were held in which students of varying backgrounds were thrown into challenging projects testing their scientific and technological knowledge.

But this is just the beginning and what awaits them in this year’s Innovation Workshop is even more exciting than what they have experienced so far. They can now look forward to meeting with educational and industry mentors, whose knowledge and expertise will set them on career paths quite unlike those of students from other universities around the world. They will also have the opportunity to present projects before these distinguished experts that will be joining us in the coming week.

“Innovation Workshop is where we aim to instill the Skoltech mission into our new students. This month-long program gives them the opportunity to develop in learning soft skills and the key elements of entrepreneurship and innovation combined with their technological and scientific expertise. That is what Skoltech is all about.” – Head of the Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Lawrence Stein
