The Regional Academies within ENLIGHT are responsible for connecting each university with external partners within their own communities. During the first year of the project each university has reached out to ask their communities what some of their major challenges connected to the five flagship themes are. These challenges will serve as a starting point for ideas on educational units, such as Living Labs, research projects or students’ individual graduation project.
Researchers can already filter their search for challenges with an external partner at any of the nine communities. Students may also easily filter out which challenges are open for graduation projects.
