PRESENTATION OF THE EXCHANGE
Throughout these 6 months I was able to participate in a wide range of activities such as product development of a potentially disruptive solution in the Solar-Thermal field, assisting Horizon2020 calls for Solarus and help managing the team.
Back in May, I had the unique opportunity to represent Solarus in the China-Sweden Green Technology and Industrial Innovation Conference in Changshu, China. After the conference, I was mainly involved in assisting with prototyping and testing of the innovative Solarus’ solutions and supported financing applications such as the SME Instrument. Furthermore, I helped the HE in crucial tasks such as team management, representation and accounting.

This novel and unique experience brought benefits beyond expected. Being able to work in a multicultural environment and learn from a wide range of different people allowed me to develop myself as an entrepreneur and as a person.
