DTU Skylab invites interdisciplinary students from across Denmark to join our open innovation sprint! You can sign up as a team or individual – we make sure to match you with different backgrounds into diverse teams. This collaborative innovation approach allows you to go on a team expedition, navigating the un-known and by an explorative and iterative creative development process bring new concepts and solutions to life. The challenge briefs given from our partners and sponsors are broad enough to allow your creativity to go unhindered and with in-built constraints to push and kick-start your process.

After the teams are formed, you let the creative expedition start during a 2-days innovation sprint with sparring from our 30+ invited expert mentors and process mentors. We bring you a minimum of interruption but just enough methodology for you to get inspired and to boost your development. You will finalize the sprint with a pitch training, which will prepare you for the grande OpenInnovation Finals where you get the chance to win exciting awards! Further, you can convince your challenge partner to spar with you for further development of the idea!

OpenInnovation X connects 100+ Students from higher educations, Researchers, Start-ups and Corporate Partners.
