Skrócony opis:

The Urban Health Case Challenge is an initiative under the 4EU+ University Alliance. In a case challenge the participating student teams strive to develop the best solution to a real-world issue presented by a business or organization within a limited time-span. Each team presents their solution in front of an expert jury at a pitching session on the last day of the case challenge. The competition has been organized to address the many urban changes associated with health and demographic transformation in our growing urban environments. This year we will deal with the question of mental health in an urban environment.

Pełny opis:

The focus this year is on how the quality of urban space and social interaction in urban space can help in the prevention and mitigation of mental health issues on an emotional, psychological and social level and thus to ensure the well-being of the inhabitants and strengthening social cohesion. Together with your team, you will work on a solution to a given case question that will be provided by the City of Mannheim.

Bachelor, master's and PhD students from 4EU+'s six partner universities and Uppsala University (Sweden), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway) and the University of Mannheim (Germany) can participate in the challenge. Each partner university has 10 places that shall be divided into two teams. The competition has been created to strengthen the university students' competencies and commitment to solving real-world problems through practical, theoretical, innovative and interdisciplinary learning. In addition, the participants get the opportunity to engage in a highly topical case from the real world and work in an innovative and interdisciplinary manner.

Starting on October 29, we will have four online classes (November 12 and 19, December 3) that provide background knowledge, ranging from psychological perspectives to behavioral economic approaches and urban planning aspects. The participants will also receive training in methods to guide innovation in urban health and pitching of results and solutions. The teams will also be trained in developing and concretising their ideas so they can present them convincingly at the finals.

Th actual challenge will take place from December 9 till December 12. On December 9, the specific case question will be revealed, and the teams will join to work on their innovative solutions to the aforementioned challenges. Background materials on the specific question, the neighborhoods and their residents will be the starting point of students’ research projects. However, the case question will be wide enough to meet the realities of several cities in Europe. The joint sessions will take place online, wherever possible the local teams are encouraged to meet and work face to face.

On December 12, the last day of the competition, the teams will pitch their solutions to an international jury of experts. All teams will receive feedback on their ideas. The winning team may be given the opportunity to put the proposed idea into practice.
