Sustainability Forum Case Competition Spring 2016

Interested in solving real world problems with companies in a multi-disciplinary setting? Then join the first Sustainability Forum Case Competition- an inter-disciplinary challenge inviting all students at Lund University. The competition will include a kick-off, an optional pitch event with inspiring guest speakers and a diverse jury. There will also be prizes for teams.
Case competition

The Lund University Sustainability Forum is holding a case competition within April and May 2016 in partnership with two local Skåne companies, NSR and Godsinlösen. NSR is a regional waste management company and Godsinlösen is an environmental technology company. The theme for these cases will be circular economy. There will also be a third case provided by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (Naturskyddsföreningen) on green finance. The consulting company COWI is also a partner in the case competition, as well as ProLab, SoPact and VentureLab.

The competition is free and open for all Lund University students of any field or degree level. Students can participate as individuals or teams of up to five people. The ideas may be presented in either Swedish or English. Teams representing several different faculties or study areas are strongly encouraged, since this could strengthen team ideas. One winning team or individual will be selected for each company case.

Join the Kick-off Event on April 13!

The kick-off event will take place on Wednesday, April 13 from 16.00-18.00 at ProLab (Sölvegatan 18, 221 00 Lund). Representatives from the participating organizations and companies will be present to describe the cases, along with other guest speakers from IIIEE and SoPact. This event will give participants an overview of the cases, tips for idea development, and an introduction to circular economy concepts. The last 30 minutes of the event will be an optional mingling period for students who wish to form teams.

Fika will be provided.
