In the programs of Innovation Academy the development of technology is a social thing. Magic happens when you put a diverse group into a room together to work on a common idea.

MacEwan University has enjoyed a partnership with the European Innovation Academy (EIA) since 2016. The EIA is an educational platform that provides students with a once in a life time educational experience. Our students have said that the experience is more than the amazing speakers, access to the best mentors and the focused entrepreneurial methodology taught. It is also what they learn about themselves through the immersion into a new culture, the intercultural team development and learning about failure and resilience. The experience for our students has unleashed the entrepreneur within for many and for others it provided a new lens to create value in the work they do.
