The EU has 500 million citizens, and is the largest economy in the world. Still, Europe is not a global leader in innovation. In 2008, the European Parliament founded the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), to answer the need to increase Europe’s competitiveness on the global market. EIT was created also to make new education happen: faster and with higher quality in Europe than anywhere else. The job market asks for academic professionals, with higher order creativity, value judging and leadership skills that will produce innovative and entrepreneurial engineers and researchers. In the following we present and discuss an EIT labeled Master program in ICT that aims to foster the education of entrepreneurial, innovative and creative students.
