The course is given within the framework of OpenLab, a venue where students and teachers from Karolinska Institutet, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Södertörn University work with agencies such as the City of Stockholm, Stockholm County Council and Stockholm County Administrative Board. OpenLab refers to a new way of learning together by bridging knowledge fields and professional roles in order to tackle and solve problems differently. Working with challenges broadly concerning sustainability of the growing city, you will collaborate in interdisciplinary project teams, to design, organize, and present innovative solutions. You will learn how to define and explore the challenge, gather and analyze data, and package your idea. The agencies that pitch the challenges are present during the process and will be engaged in a dialog with new ideas pertaining to solutions regarding important questions for society in the future.
