Innovative ideas for the University in the City
CIVIS, a European Civic University, is committed to addressing the greatest societal challenges of our time. But to meet these challenges, we need innovative, feasible and inspiring solutions.
This is why CIVIS organised a Creathon for students, academics and staff across the CIVIS Alliance on 25 and 26 November 2021! It was a perfect opportunity to meet fellow members from the ten CIVIS universities, be a creative force, share expertise and bring innovative ideas to life.
Around 40 participants were selected and gathered in Brussels, Belgium, at Université libre de Bruxelles.
Among the participants, there were:
- Students (BA and MA) - across all academic disciplines
- PhD candidates - across all academic disciplines
- Post-docs - across all academic disciplines
- Academic staff - across all academic disciplines
- Researchers - across all academic disciplines
- Administrative staff
Participants, organised into 7 teams, worked tirelessly to find innovative ways to build the CIVIS University campus of tomorrow and competed for first place on the podium. Discover the different teams below!
