Entrepreneurial mindset

Clab School of Innovation Trento

Since September 2018, SoI has been offering a package of courses to students from all University’s departments. It recently extended admission to LifeLong Learners in order to increas diversity.

SOI applied courses equip students with tools and skills to analyze, develop and promote innovation processes in different sectors—technical, scientific, social and humanistic.

SOI builds on the long-lasting experience of CLab Trento, the centre to develop an entrepreneurial mindset as well as passion for innovation, which has proven very popular among students.

Hosted in the Clab Trento interdisciplinary laboratories, which further encourages the entrepreneurial vision of innovation and its implementation, SoI complements the lab-based approach with focussed applied education and challenge based learning opportunities, along with a strong interdisciplinary attitude.
