May 1st: Welcome @ University of Twente

We will welcome you and your fellow ECIU students on Monday evening, the 1st of May. The first evening is just to get to know each other a little bit and have some drinks and bites. 

May 2nd-3rd: Create Tomorrow!

And then… it all starts! Tuesday the 2nd of May and Wednesday the 3rd of May is Create Tomorrow. Get ready for workshops to follow and interesting keynote speakers to listen to on the first day. While working on real challenges from actual companies with your team on the second day, it is possible to ask questions and talk to your challenge provider all day. Throughout this day, there will be speakers and entertainment performing on stage. After the winner is announced, it is time for the after-party. Excited about the idea of joining?

May 4th: Twente Experience

For you, as ECIU students, this is however not the end of it all. On Thursday, we will gather once more and you will get to know the campus of the University of Twente and its surroundings a little better. After lunch, there will be an interesting workshop. 

May 5th: Liberation Festival (optional)

The official program will end on Thursday. However, if you want, you can stick around a little longer. Friday the 5th of May is Liberation Day in the Netherlands. Therefore, there will be a festival on campus. For more information and tickets, click here. Be quick, since it is often sold out beforehand! If you want to stay in the Netherlands on Friday night, you’ll have to book an accommodation yourself, as it’s not included in our offer.

Practical information

  • We will take care of sleeping accommodation from May 1st until the morning of the 5th, free of charge for you. However, you need to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow case because you will sleep in cabins. Beds and pillows are present. Bring your power banks as well, since there are only a few sockets.

  • Our campus is smoke-free, which also goes for the cabins and surroundings.

  • Lunch will be provided on Wednesday the 3rd and Thursday the 4th of May.

  • Dinner will be provided during both days of Create Tomorrow.

  • ECIU University is all about international cooperation. An average of 4 ECIU students per partner could receive a financial contribution of 200 euros each. You will be contacted by the officer responsible at your university if you are among the students selected for the contribution.

  • You can sign up for Create Tomorrow as a team, as a duo or as an individual. ECIU will cover the registration fee for Create Tomorrow. You need to register through this challenge page and not through the website of Create Tomorrow.

  • Since we will cover a lot of your costs, you will be charged with these costs in case you do not join the whole program after signing up. You can cancel your application until March 29th.
