NICE Summer School

Part of the NICE programme includes a weeklong Summer School to cement the learning for those who are able and interested in attending. Please note that if you are interested in attending the Summer School you must apply for this experience. Completing the online modules is a pre-requisite to attend the Summer School, but it is not a guarantee of a place. The application information for the NICE Summer School in Salamanca will be circulated in early 2020.

dublin nice Summer School 2019

The 2019 NICE Summer School was held in Dublin from July 21 - 27 and the students had a great time! They attended morning lectures and sessions on cross-cultural communication, testing viable products, leadership across cultures and decision-making skills, among many other topics. All attendees were also put into groups and they spent their afternoons throughout the week working on solutions for a Global Challenge that they pitched on the last day of the Summer School. All the students had the opportunity to take an introductory class in Irish language and culture and participate in an Instagram scavenger hunt through Dublin! Our final day finished off with dinner out to a local restaurant and a night of Irish music.

Salamanca nice summer school 2020

The NICE Summer School in Salamanca will be held from July 12 - 18, 2020. This Summer School will follow a similar schedule and structure to the Summer School in Dublin. Students who attend can expect to spend time in groups working on the concepts they learned about in the online modules and pitching their innovative business idea to a group of local experts and entrepreneurs.

The NICE Summer School in Salamana is part-funded and students who are selected to attend will receive a travel stipend (the amount is dependant on location) and a daily subsistence stipend for their costs. This funding is conditional upon attendance of the Summer School and if you are awarded a place and funding, but do not attend, you will be required to pay back the travel stipend and any funding paid towards your place in accommodation.

Final Project Workshop

The final NICE project workshop will be held in Brussels in August 2020. Staff members from each of the partner universities will attend this event and a select number of students from the 2019 and 2020 cycles of NICE will be invited to attend and showcase their group work at the event.

Please note that not all students will be invited to attend the NICE final project workshop. A small number of students who have performed exceptionally well will be invited to attend and showcase their work.
