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.
MEET THE CITY
About the EnschedeLAB
Het EnschedeLAB heeftthree target groups
Of course: students! They can participate in the nano challenge that we organize every quartile, or help solve EnschedeLAB issues through their own training.
Some as an instructor or supervisor, and almost every one because you can delegate students. And because our issues may fit well with existing courses and study programs.
We will not start anything without good issues. And an issue without an owner does not progress. That is why an important target group for us is also: clients.
We work with real challenges
The EnschedeLAB works with challenges / issues. On our Challenge page we present which issues are open, which issues we are working on - in what way - and which challenges have been completed and what the results were. Below three of the examples, from completed to yet to be addressed, and below a button to the page with all challenges.
In quartile 3 we start with the nano challenge “Blik van de Weg”. In order to increase the quality of life in Enschede, we want to close parking spaces in the center. Students will work to find ways to give the parking spaces a new, sustainable function.
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.
In the first quartile, we did a nano challenge on 'Post Corona' issues. One of them: what can we do with those concerned about loneliness among (international) students?
