The ENGAGE.EU Expedition is a one-week intensive, international and multidisciplinary co-design programme and learning experience for students who work together with experts and mentors on finding solutions to real-life problems. It is a collaborative program, which focuses on creating value for society and uses the framework for inno-preneurship as guiding principle. They offer formal and informal learning in context together with ENGAGE.EU partners.
By engaging in this international co-design program, students contribute to real-life societal transformations. They work with other students in teams on challenges presented by the societal partners of ENGAGE.EU universities. Throughout the programme, they are guided towards knowledge-based and mission-oriented solutions by using design-thinking principles.
Participating students gain and deepen their knowledge and attitudes that enable them to act upon opportunities and transform them into value for others, being:
- Taking initiative, motivation and persistence, and self-efficacy and self-confidence.
- Creating and recognizing opportunities, creativity and innovativeness, and decision making under uncertainty.
- Collaborating in diverse and interdisciplinary contexts, mobilizing resources, and implementation.
- Systems thinking, future and disruptive thinking and ethical and sustainable thinking.
ENGAGE.EU expeditions are organized on top of the regular curriculum of the student.
