Designing the pilot program

The learning experience is being designed by partners in collaboration with a mix team of Spanish and Finish students. Target group of this action are students in higher education innovation, in which students of different fields produce new, fresh ideas to answer the challenges given by companies. This learning initiative provides students with a new and effective form of learning, as well as a nice opportunity for networking.

Also work is being focus on creating the innovate or die experience that will be a really open learning action for all the stake holders: the participants, organisers, enterprises, local development agencies, etc.

At the same time we are dealing with all the logistic issues for the action: place, marketing brochures, dissemination activities.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

We will engage 50-60 learners in our activity to work in teams to solve enterprise challenges!
