The Circle U. Challenge has been developed within the Circle U project as a multi-stakeholder concept, that allows students from different universities to connect and collaborate with other actors, to the extent of developing innovative sustainable solutions, at a business, product, or service level.
The student competition has been designed to nurture and strengthen the entrepreneurial spirit among students, motivate them to think innovatively, and create sustainable solution to real-time problems.
University hospitals and cities/regions are recognized as key partners in the development of the Circle U. Challenge and have developed the challenges in three key areas: ecology, health and democracy.
Students will be able to apply starting September 1st, until end of October, while the selected teams will take part in a several months long program, beginning in November 2022, and ending in May 2023.
