application and prerequisites


In order to be accepted on the programme, students must send a letter of motivation, including the following:

Commitment to contribute an extraordinary effort, including extra time
Thoughts on which competences the student already possesses and which competences he or she still lacks
Diploma (if any)
Name and contact information of supervisor

Normally it will take an average of 10, but applications will be assessed as a whole. Interviews will be held if necessary.


All applications are evaluated according to the above criteria by a committee. The latter consists of chosen members from AAU who are especially qualified to assess a student’s innovative or entrepreneurial potential. The committee members are nominated by the Dean of the Faculty of IT and Design for a period of two years. The pro-dean is ex officio member and chairman:

Jakob Stoustrup, Vice Dean, Education, TECH (chairman)
Luis Emilio Bruni, Associate Professor, Deparment of Architecture, Design and Media Technology
Torben Bach Pedersen, Professor, Department of Computer Science
Poul Alberg Østergaard, Professor, Department of Planning
Søren Holdt Jensen, Department of Electronic Systems
Mikael B. Skov (Coordinator of the programme)

There is no requirement for minimum number of participants to run the program, but the program has a maximum of no more than 12 students per year. The committee’s decision is final.
