With the summer coming up and the campus becoming less crowded this time we wanted to give a short update about last quarter and some things to look forward to in September. A few weeks ago we had our 2nd ECE Community get-together of the year with a BBQ at 42Workspace. We took the opportunity to visit our neighbor startup-hub to strengthen the community here in Rotterdam. At one of our next community events we are welcoming the 42 community to our ECE Campus.
Back to business: Last semester we host about 350 events. From internal events of De Rotterdamse Zorg, SMO, PortXL, Erasmus MC and external events of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and the Municipality of Rotterdam. Last month we were honoured to host the 4 day Annual Retreat of Climate KIC and to receive the guest of the Netwerk Ontbijt Zorg Innovatie again. They were talking about Augmented Reality in the Healtcare and looking into two best practices from Project Glazz en Mind therapy.
We also received more than 1,000 students from, among others, the Erasmus University and the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (HR). One of our goals is to create more interaction between the companies here at the ECE Campus and the events/lectures taking place. So in September there is also a lot of education planned from both our own Erasmus University to other educational institutions; from minors to masters and various courses. There is a lot to look forward and we can’t wait to receive more entrepreneurial minds second semester!
