Solving Sustainable Future Challenges

At the Sprint Innovation Festival, interdisciplinary teams of students tackle sustainable future challenges, with input from our working life partners offering various perspectives. The partners accompany the students throughout the process, providing support and fueling the teams to generate new and innovative ideas.

In addition, students receive guidance from inspiring coaches and experts from different fields. Diverse keynote speakers offer fresh perspectives and practical tips for both students and partners.

Students have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in their studies and develop meta-skills such as teamwork and creativity. The event provides ample networking opportunities for both students and partners – opportunities that should be seized!

As the grand finale of the Sprint event, a panel of experts and representatives from working life partners assesses the solutions and selects the best ones, which are also rewarded. All teams are given opportunities to further develop their ideas even after the event.

The language used during the event is English.
