Incubator for MUW and UW Communities

The UW Incubator is a place that brings together students and faculty members from across UW and MUW. It is a space where people with a different way of thinking, full of passion and interests, open to new challenges, transform their knowledge and experience into real and practical action. The participants of the Incubator are motivated to gain new competences in order to change their situation by implementing their own projects and ideas.


The IUW team strives to ensure that the topics and challenges addressed by its participants respond to the real economic and social challenges. It provides participants with the necessary infrastructure and support to develop ideas through opportunities to work with trainers, business practitioners and university academic staff. The UW Incubator helps representatives of the UW and MUW Communities to implement original projects, to create innovation and to develop entrepreneurial attitudes.
