For many years, Artevelde University College Ghent (AUC) and Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK) have been good partners. Not only have we been exchanging students and staff from various programmes for a long time, but since this academic year, we also cooperate very closely in 3ID LABS: a brand-new educational project in which students from different disciplines, different countries and of different ages spend a semester working together on a solution to a complex social problem using the principles of studio learning and design thinking.
While we were sleeping the night of 9 to 10 November, twenty Business Management and International Business Management students were tackling a global problem. Not by themselves, but together with 150 students from fifteen universities and university colleges, spread all over the world. Via large screens and online tools, they joined forces to come up with creative, sustainable and financially viable solutions.
