Innovation Games - Sustainable Transformation
Sustainable transformation is penetrating all areas of life and changing our way of working. Startups are accelerating in sustainable innovation and also many large companies are transforming activities into more sustainable ones. In order to take optimal advantage of the opportunities around sustainable innovation, speed, flexibility and agility is required.
Therefore, together with our project partner Start up Mix Nijmegen, d.school STUDIO.WHY will tackle various sustainable innovation challenges for companies during the Innovation Games from the 8th -13th of April.
Through exploration with sector experts, corporate leaders of major companies (such as DAR, ARN, UMC Radboud) and startups in Nijmegen, 40 students and starters will identify needs, frictions and opportunities for the local (Nijmegen) market. With those insights they will develop innovative solutions which will be pitched for the ‘Dragons Den’ jury during the final presentations on April 13th.
