Welcome everybody!

We're hosting an event at EIT Digital during the ICT Days, where we will first present you our Master School and Doctoral School programmes, and will then have the pleasure to listen to a keynote talk by Julia Wache, one of our Alumni and co-founder of feelSpace, a startup which develops and sells tactile navigation belts especially designed for visually impaired people.

Below the preliminary agenda:

  • 18.00 - Welcome

  • 18.10 - The EIT Digital Master School

  • 18.20 - The EIT Digital Doctoral School

  • 18.30 - Innovation Talk by Julia Wache, EIT Digital Alumnus, CEO and founder of feelSpace:

The naviBelt – My journey from being a researcher to becoming an entrepreneur

In her talk, Julia Wache speaks about the challenges of becoming an entrepreneur as a natural scientist. When she co-founded feelSpace in 2015 she was still a student and worked mostly in research.

While feelSpace is a university spin-off close to research, it develops and sells tactile navigation devices which requires a much wider skill set.

Julia Wache tells about her personal development from a scientist to an entrepreneur and how she and her cofounders - all cognitive scientists by training - managed the transition into the world of business. She points out many important aspects that contribute to successfully getting your own startup launched.
