Don’t miss the chance to be part of the most exciting Summer School around the Globe. Apply now and meet leading Entrepreneurial Talents from around the World for more than one week in Germany.  

This year summer school will be held on September 20-28, 2012, the topic of the summer school: People on our PlanetChallenges of the Future.

Population Dynamics constitutes one of the most multifaceted global issues that will impact the shape of our world’s societies. While in most developed nations the population is both aging and shrinking, the total global population will explode from 7 billion at present to 10 billion in 2050. Never before in history people have migrated at such frequency and number, from rural areas to cities, from the poorer to the richer countries.

It has become common place to work and live in multiple countries and many people see themselves as “citizens of the world”. Megacities rise and bring huge opportunities for new business and science clusters but also bear the threat of ecological collapse. These dynamics produce many challenges for the world community but also huge entrepreneurial chances as entirely new demands and markets emerge. Take the challenge!
