Everything about the Move! Summer of Ideas and the MOVE! Ideas Festival 2022

What is the MOVE! ideas festival?

The MOVE! Ideas Festival is the universities' entrepreneurial creative event. Students from different disciplines and universities come together with professionals, coaches and entrepreneurs to work together on their entrepreneurial projects and ideas. As students of the participating universities, you will receive support to give your project ideas the right boost. Three days of keynotes, workshops, and input from coaches and our mentors.

How does the Move! Ideas Festival work?

The Move! Ideas Festival takes place over three days (November 11-13) with different focuses. Day 1 is the get-to-know-you and Creativity Day. After getting to know the participants and selected projects, you will give free rein to your creativity in changing teams and learn how to let ideas develop. 

Day 2 is dedicated to cross-university teamwork as Idea Sprint Day. Work on your own or selected project ideas and get input from coaches and mentors. In the evening, we celebrate together what has been achieved. 

On the third day, the Idea Presentation Day, your ideas will get the final polish for the presentation and as a farewell, you will receive feedback from us on originality and feasibility as well as on possibilities for further support.
