Over dit evenement

DO! Ghent University organises 'Sustainable Solutions' from 18 through 20 February 2022.

During this event, you look for sustainable solutions for today's challenges. Students and / or researchers from several disciplines work together to create this solution.

It is possible to apply as a team or as an individual, with or without your own challenge. We will start the bootcamp with a matchmaking session in order for all teams to start off fair and square.

After the kick-off, you and your team mates receive 36 hours to work together to achieve a 'proof of concept' of your product. As a team, you use those 36 hours however you see fit: you choose how, what and where to work. Perhaps you want to take a sleeping bag along and work deep in the night, or you'd rather go back home to recharge your batteries. Everything is allowed! Meals, snacks and drinks throughout the entire event are provided.

Coaches from both academia and the corporate world are present to lend you their advice and expertise during these 36 hours. The emphasis is not on solving difficult questions in a definitive way, but rather to learn how to think out of the box and experience the value of working with people from different disciplines. Motivation and an appetite for teamwork are the most important aspects.

The presence of these well-known and experienced coaches means that the 'Sustainable Solutions' is a perfect opportunity for you to network. We will organise networking opportunities during the first and the last day, in order for you to gain insight in future opportunities.

The winning team will receive an inspirational prize. What is more, it will also gain access to the 'pitch round' of Ghent University's acclaimed startup programme, Expedition DO!, if they would like to develop their techathon idea even further.

So don't hesitate and just apply. We will let you know as soon as possible whether you (and your team) are selected so keep 18 till 20 February free in your calendar!

Applications are open until 10 February.

The event will take place offline if possible and online if need be.

Important note: if you want to register as a team, please have ALL team members apply seperately. You will be able to make the link with your other teammates as part of the application process. A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 team members per team is required.

'Sustainable Solutions' is part of DO! Innovation Bootcamp, powered by Stad Gent.
