Innovations for Societal Challenges: Multidisciplinary Project Course

Are you interested in working in interdisciplinary teams? Do you want to engage in societal challenges that relate to the future of expanding cities?

If so, this project course is perfect for you. You work in a team with students from other disciplines and universities, with the goal to develop innovative ideas that meet sustainability challenges in e.g. environment and healthcare.

The course, which is based at Openlab, is a collaboration between SU, KI, KTH and Södertörn University. The challenges are formulated in dialogue with our partners the City of Stockholm and the Stockholm Region.

By using design thinking as a model for solving complex problems, you learn methods for problem identification, idea generation, prototyping and problem solving. You are trained in the organisation of teamwork, and oral and visual presentation of ideas and solutions.

In different workshops you learn the different phases of the design thinking model. The course ends with a project delivery for the team's challenge giver.
