Till now, the program had been implemented in more than 130 countries and regions worldwide, benefiting over 30,000 students from more than 500+ universities.
As the spread and impact of COVID-19 continue unfolding around the world, we need to be more alert, and more decisive than ever – responding constantly to changing conditions, while keeping an eye on the future, to ensure preparedness when better times return. However, learning and communication should never stop.
In 2021 after the online program, we took the best students to Brussels offline event where visited Brussels, Belgium, where students had the opportunity to meet with various experts in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT), including members of the European Parliament, cybersecurity experts at Huawei Cyber Security and Transparency Center and see the largest built-in photovoltaic system in Europe, consisting of 5,808 solar panels. Experience trip to Brussels was given to 26 best technology students from Scandinavia and the Baltic countries which gave them an opportunity to learn more about technology but also network and make new friends. In 2022 we are planning a trip to Vienna for the best Seeds for the Future alumni in the Nordic and Baltic regions.
