i²c Diploma Supplement on Innovation: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!


It’s time again for applications! We open the call for the already 6th class of the Diploma Supplement on Innovation, the international supplementary curriculum providing a premium, hands-on education on intra- und entrepreneurship for bachelor/master/PhD students of TU Wien, which is unique in international comparison.

The i²c is offering the Diploma Supplement on Innovation since 2012, when it started as an education on intra- und entrepreneurship for master students of the faculty of informatics only. Since 2016, the curriculum is open for all students (bachelor, master and PhD) from all TUW-faculties. Following the learnings and experiences of the past years, we partition the practical course (12 ECTS), which has been taking place in the third semester so far and add the now partitioned course (6 ECTS each) to the first and second semester. Thus, we enable the students to get their projects market-ready in a shorter period of time, while keeping the scope of 30 ECTS points. The next class will start in October 2017 and pitch their innovative projects at the Diploma Demo Day in June 2018.
