Pushing the limits
Its amazing to experience that students with totally different backgrounds can push their limits together. Starting off with a raw idea and being able to push this idea all the way to a working prototype in only 48 hours, is an experience that is not only fun, but also teaches you what it means to actively shape our future.
The experience as a whole
I would strongly recommend the event to peers, the preparation, the pitch, the team building and the mentors that added value to the working process. The experience as a whole was great.
The Innovation Days 2016 was a great chance to combine practical implementation with subject-specific skills assisted by various academic and expert knowledge.
Open for learning
We wanted to get outsiders to tackle our key challenge. The insights we received were inspirational and valuable for planning our future.
I joined the prototype expos for three years and I was always impressed with the quality of the solutions. A positive surprise what can result from 48 hours.
The cross-functional teams approached our challenge from a different perspective. Our team was fueled by the energy of the 48 hours.
