Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) is thrilled to launch a newBlended Intensive Programme (BIP): Green Deal Collider: Sustainable Futures, 2023, together with the University of Lorraine (France), Aalto University (Finland) and Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands).
How to integrate science, entrepreneurship, real-life challenges and co-creation in university? How to do this in such a way that the different parties can actually benefit from it?
"Green Deal Collider: Sustainable Futures" (3 ECTS) is based on problem-based and project-based learning principles. The BIP course aims to support university students and employees in promoting science-based entrepreneurship and developing technically feasible and economically viable products, services and business models for implementing the European Green Deal.
The main lecturers are Ergo Pikas (Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, TalTech, tenured assistant professor) and Kätlin Kangur (Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, TalTech, Programme Director of the master’s programme Design and Technology Futures). Research groups from TalTech and partner universities are involved as mentors for projects/challenges to be solved in the course. Sustainable enrichment of mineral resources, smart cities, circular economy and data science-related challenges are represented.
The course is aimed primarily at master’s and doctoral students from TalTech and our Erasmus+ partner universities and is not limited to any specific curriculum/field. Open university students are also welcome to join. It is also a good opportunity for the student to continue with the project as part of the thesis and/or to diversify their own activity.
