Apply before March 14th and help develop solutions for challenges in the city of Lagos, Nigeria!

This is an amazing opportunity for social entrepreneurs!

Do you want to improve your entrepreneurial skills while developing solutions for challenges in the city of Lagos, Nigeria? Then apply for the project Cocreate my city Lagos, organized by Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship and Dutch Centers for Entrepreneurship! After following several online seminars, you will fly to Lagos to apply your knowledge and work on a case during a two-week study trip.

In small teams together with students from Nigeria you will develop solutions for local challenges such as waste management, food supply and unemployment. You will cooperate with experts from the local government, knowledge institutions and the private sector. During the final event, all teams will present their solution in front of an expert jury.

The programme in Lagos will take place in June 2019. Participation costs are €300, including flights, accommodation, meals and field trips. Before and after the programme in Lagos, students are expected to commit time for preparation and reporting.

We invite Master students from all disciplines to apply for this amazing experience before 14 March 2019. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to e-mail to: or visit our website.
