Interested in solving problems that matter?

Participate in the first ever Innovation Challenge and gain a unique merit to add to your CV while you network with one of the largest private employers in Dalarna. Dalarna 24h Innovation Challenge is a competition for Dalarna University students who want to make a difference in the world for future sustainability.

The Innovation Challenge will be a 24 hour event from February 10th-11th where you will work in a team with other students (you don’t need to have a team in advance as this will be selected during the 10th) to solve a real problem focused on sustainability. The two teams with the best presentation at the end of the 24 hours will get a prize. Most importantly you will get a chance to sharpen your creative toolkit, interact with coaches who can help you and your teammates harness creative solutions in a short period of time, and gain experience pitching your ideas in a corporate environment.
