Una.Futura. Design sprint from 5 to 9 July! Don't miss it!

This summer, Una Europa offers students a unique experience, tackling real-life challenges in cross-European teams. Students can meet their counterparts from other disciplines and countries and add multicultural communication skills and open design expertise to their CV.

Set up as an open innovation design process, Una.Futura will take students on a journey, developing solutions to real-life challenges arising from the digital revolution.

The initiative builds on UNA.TEN (Transform Emergency Now! 10 days for change), Una Europa’s cross-European student hackathon held in April/ May 2020 which addressed COVID19 post emergency challenges.

From 5 to 9 July, Una.Futura will bring together groups of approximately five students at bachelor, master and/or PhD level from all Una Europa partner universities. Teamed up with facilitators and experts, they will work on jointly finding solutions to six key challenges.


More than 20 students of the University of Bologna are participating in the challenge helped by 5 Unibo facilitators:
