WP 4: Student Led Sustainable Innovation

The objectives of Work Package 4 are to increase students’ engagement in innovation approaches to sustainability and to co-develop and implement challenge-based courses and programmes across universities and disciplines.

In order to reach these objectives, we will work on three building blocks: 

  • Develop the concept for Circle U. Challenge where cross-disciplinary teams of students provide solutions to authentic problems provided by associated partners such as cities and hospitals. 
  • Setting up a Female Founder Network where network members motivate more female students to engage in entrepreneurship and innovation. 
  • Implement an online training programme on sustainable entrepreneurship and innovation.
