The EnschedeLAB is there to bring city and student together. With real issues that live in Enschede, we challenge students from the University of Twente, Saxion Hogeschool, ROC van Twente and AKI / ArtEZ to collaborate across the boundaries of their institution on innovative solutions that help the city further.
In quartile 4 we start with the nano challenge “Operation Clean”. With this challenge, we are going to work with the question "How do we avoid generating so much waste in our operating theater?" with which the Medisch Spectrum Twente is struggling.
In quartile 3 we started with the nano-challenge “Blik van de Weg”. To increase the quality of life in Enschede, we want to close parking spaces in the center. Students set to work to find ways to give the parking spaces a new, sustainable function. The results are now on the challenge page.
How can we limit the nuisance caused by smokers in neighborhoods located around the grounds of educational institutions? Four groups of students came up with solutions, including “Meuk” a smart waste bin and a 30-day challenge.
