Student Challenges bring students and businesses together, working on real business issues while learning new tools approaches to developing products, services and solutions. Over one or two days colleges provide a space to explore real challenges set by local businesses, with support from an external innovation agency.
The first Student Challenges took place in early 2014 in Somerset. See some of what went on here. This Autumn we’re running a new programme of Challenges, adding a couple of Devon colleges and taking a few participating students overseas to the Mega Brainstorm event in Gent, Belgium.
If you’re a Somerset or Devon Business then find out how to submit a challenge. Students can find out more here. And if you’re a college, anywhere, let us know if you’d like to be included in a future Challenge.
