The registration period for the 1st Edition of the Explorer 2023 Programme is now open

It is now possible to register for the Explorer 2023 programme, sponsored by Santander Universities through Santander X and in which the Universitat de València participates as Explorer Space. This initiative aims to help university students to connect with their future, experiencing entrepreneurship as a professional option and as a form of economic independence.


Over 12 weeks, participants will work on their idea, transforming it into a solution that contributes to achieving the 2030 SDGs. With a practical approach and based on social learning dynamics, Explorer is designed for participants to become an active part of change through the implementation of economically sustainable projects in different industries, sectors and types of organisations. It is possible to participate alone or in a team of a maximum of 5 people.

Explorer is aimed at young people between the ages of 18 and 31 who want to make a positive impact on the world, as well as any student who wants to understand the benefits and opportunities offered by entrepreneurship, always in a safe space where mistakes are allowed and where it is not necessary to know anything about companies and business in order to move forward. It is also a programme designed for entrepreneurs who want to verify whether their solutions can have an impact on society.

The Explorer 2023 First Edition will take place between 30 January and 30 April 2023. The 12-week training will be free of charge for participants, as it is funded by Santander Universities. In the case of Spain, the training format is blended learning, with most of the experience being online, although there may be face-to-face activities in each centre (Explorer Space), as it is the case of the Universitat de València. In any case, these are adaptable to a virtual setting.

To participate in Explorer, it is necessary to complete the application form with information about the participant and their project. If applying as a team, each team member must complete the application form and only the project leader must identify themselves as such. All information about the programme and the application process can be found at this link. The application period will be open until 13 December 2022.


Date From 4 november 2022 to 13 december 2022. 24h. Every day.
