What is Circle U. Challenge 2022?
Circle U. Challenge is a series of challenges at 7 European universities, who are part of the Circle U. partner alliance. Students from all the Circle U. partner universities can join all of the challenges. The concept is, that students come up with sustainable solutions to real life challenges, while working in cross disciplinary teams of students with different study backgrounds. Teams can be formed at a single university, but can also consist of students from different European universities. Students are offered a series of workshops, referred to as boot camp, where they get tools and skills, which they can then apply when working with the challenges. Circle U. Challenge 2022 takes place in November. Volunteers help in organizing workshops.
