Work together on an inspiring project!

Student City Challenge 2021

Arnhem Studiestad works together with Citymarketing Arnhem, HAN University of Applied Sciences, ArtEZ University of the Arts, Van Hall Larenstein and ROC Rijn IJssel to make Arnhem an even more attractive city for study and work. As part of that, Arnhem Studiestad is organizing a Student City Challenge!

During the challenge, students will work on issues from local government (City of Arnhem), research institutes and the business community that can innovate and boost the student climate in Arnhem. We’ll be doing this in a 15-hour event where first, second and third year students use ideation and design to work towards an innovative business case: a pressure cooker where students are continuously fed and stimulated through associations, emotions and intuition based on the Creative Inventive Thinking method.

Students from different degree programs will explore the issues together in an interdisciplinary setting and under the guidance of a coach. This is a great practical case for students to get acquainted with entrepreneurship. Interdisciplinary cooperation, workshops on social design, biomimicry, business model canvas and stakeholder validation are all part of the program. A pitch fair will be held at the end for the City Deal Kennis Maken and Ondernemers Kontakt Arnhem entrepreneur network. A jury will select the three best teams for a public pitch.
