One Day Design Challenge

02 februari 2018 09:00 - 17:00

Engineers Without Borders-NL is organizing this event-challenge where you will use multiple skills to come up with innovative, sustainable and cost effective solutions. Five challenges from our partnering development and emergency aid organizations are looking for the best idea-pitch! And you will have the chance to win a spot in the implementation team!

We are excited to present the Engineers without Borders (EWB) Design Challenge taking place on 2 February 2018 in Amsterdam at the Nuon headquarters (Hoekenrode 8). The event starts at 9.00 and finishes at 17.00.

Design solutions for five different challenges

During one day professionals from companies based in the Netherlands, but not excluded, will team up to design solutions for one of the five different challenges proposed by our partnering development and emergency aid organizations. The teams will be assembled from different disciplines, both inside and outside the engineering field, and we are convinced that surprising solutions can be generated thanks to your involvement!

Pitch solutions and win

At the end of the day all teams will pitch their solutions and the winning teams will be invited to develop and implement theirs in collaboration with the organizations which proposed the challenges. In this way, it will be delivered a concrete project which will benefit local communities and you will gain more awareness of social design aspects involved in technology-based social innovations.

The registration for the event is already open (click here). Please, help us spread the word to make a complete success out of this event.

The cost to participate is 125 euro per person, and there are maximum ~130 places available on a first come first serve basis. All the income generated will be entirely used to execute the winning projects (e.g., prototyping and testing cost). As EWB-NL has the ANBI status, we remind you that this amount is deductible from your tax declaration.
