Young Talent Programme

The fostering and nurturing of young talent is a central pillar of Initiate, whether a young professional at the beginning of their career in energy or a final-year student. Our bespoke Young Talent Programme gives students who are approaching graduation and are interested in working in the industry and young professionals (under-30) genuine opportunities to learn about the industry and the energy transition.

In addition, there will be plenty of opportunities to network and make those all-important industry contacts for the future.

An exciting and fun part of the on-site Young Talent Programme will be a series of Young Talent Challenges aimed at students. As examples, we’re delighted once again to be working with EIT InnoEnergy on its Career Impact Challenges for its students, as well as TU Berlin and its Masters students.

If you’re a university or a related educational organisation with a focus on energy and sustainability and are interested in setting up a challenge for your students on-site at Initiate, please contact Eva Hureau (
