iDAY: A LIFE-CHANGING INITIATIVE
iDay is an activity in which students from different academic fields work together to solve challenges facing society. It was held in 33 European centers between October and November 2023 and this year’s challenges revolved around sustainability and health.
The purpose of this initiative is to encourage and promote innovation among students. Students worked in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
The I-Day also allows them:
- Acquire new skills: lateral thinking, analytical skills, use of innovative tools, etc.
- Broaden horizons: share experience with students from different areas.
- Address real problems: offer solutions to challenges of inclusion and sustainability posed by industry.
It is important to emphasize the important presence of TBS E-Ship students within local innovation challenges, as this is the second year in a row that TBS students are part of the winning team at iDays.
