Why NEWTON Research & Innovation Week

The NEWTON Business Summit brought together an incredibly inspiring gathering of entrepreneurs and executives to share their experiences and ideas in business and innovation. Discussions focused on the latest trends in technology, marketing and business.

This interdisciplinary conference (Management and Social Science Congress), in the TEDx talks format, aims to bring together social and political sciences on the one hand and business and management studies on the other.

Students’ Poster Section

The Students’ Poster Section is a unique opportunity for NEWTON and other university students as young, creative and aspiring researchers to display the summary of their research, interests or projects. Participants showcase their academic endeavours through posters, displayed along NEWTON’s corridors during the whole Innovation Week. At the poster preparation stage, students are given guidance and can consult their work with the organisers, which develops their understanding of the approach to this kind of academic projects. 

By taking part in the poster conference students gain the opportunity:

  1. for academic engagement
  2. to network with other passionate young researchers
  3. to get the certificate of participation in the poster conference.


The NEWTON Research & Innovation Week programme is aimed at both students and prospective students, not only through the Job Fair and Pop Up Market, but also through other activities in the form of the European Forum of Entrepreneurship scientific conference. We also target academics who are interested in current topics, science and research. We want to create an environment where people can be inspired, learn and make new contacts with people with the same interests. So whether you’re a student, alumnus/​​alumna, researcher or prospective student, NEWTON Research & Innovation Week is for you!

This year’s programme will be spread across the week but there will be no shortage of activities:

  • NEWTON Minds: Amy C. Edmondson (kick-off event)
  • NEWTON University Group Annual Conference
  • Student Pop Up Market
  • European Forum of Entrepreneurship academic conference & networking party for conference attendees
  • Job Fair
  • Live Panel Debate with Margareta Křížová, Čestmír Strakatý and other guests
