UCITYLAB Challenge Toolkit

Partner HEIs will work on developing a two-phased study program, in consultation with the societal stakeholders. First phase of the program will be designed to focus on student understanding of the basic concepts of urban innovation, social entrepreneurship, and acquiring basic field research skills, followed by urban challenge assignments provided to students by the authorities, guided student field trips, idea development, data collection, and students drafting of a concrete action plan for the development of a product or a service by the end of the semester. The second phase will be designed for implementation of the suggested solutions in the respective city contexts by the students, in collaboration with the urban stakeholders.
