New Master’s Course Challenges

After receiving a variety of critical societal challenges from our partners throughout the city and region of Stockholm we have narrowed it down to three key challenges for this term’s masters’ students to solve.

For twenty weeks, our student teams will apply the design thinking method to find solutions that are grounded in a deep understanding of the needs and experiences of people affected by the challenges.

The challenges have been selected through the following criteria:

  • The challenge relates to Openlab’s mission to solve complex societal challenges.
  • The end result needs to have the potential of being upscaled and distributed.
  • The challenge contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030.
  • The challenge has been established within the applying organisation.
