From October 27th to 30th, PRIME is co-organizing a Learning Expedition in Silicon Valley for Educpros. This Learning Expedition will bring together around 20 participants: Deans of universities, Directors of Grandes Ecoles and representatives of the ministry of higher education.
Stanford, Berkeley, Coursera, Udemy, Techshop, Google, Salesforce, Oracle are some of the places that the delegation will visit.
The main objective of this LEX is for French universities’ deans and directors of schools to meet with the broad Californian educational ecosystem. Innovation will be broached from various point of views including student entrepreneurship and executive education.
This LEX will also give some keys to understand the necessity of building relationships between universities, Alumni and companies to optimize innovation.
In addition to the numerous visits, several meetings and evening events will enable deans and school directors to network, initiate partnerships and communicate on their school programs. PRIME has dedicated specific sessions to engage with Directors of U.S. universities, founders of disruptive startups and French expatriates working in the Bay area.
If you are interested in EdTech, you can join us on October 29th evening. Before the networking sessions, several startups will present their solutions such as Declara, Educreations, Talentoday or Uclass.
