The center supports the professional development of students, graduates and faculty members, seeking to motivate, train and develop their creative skills and projects.
Each year, we scout for the most original ideas with a potential to succeed in today’s or tomorrow’s markets and offer them acceleration, creativity and business development tools within and outside the academic environment.
