Smart Solutions Festival 2018

Smart Solutions Semester

At Saxion Smart Solutions Semester, students from various degree programmes work together on complex issues from research groups or the business community. More specifically, issues for which the solution cannot be found within one field of expertise. This is why our students work in interdisciplinary project teams, with innovation, creativity and collaboration are at the heart of the projects.

How does it work? 

The concept for the Smart Solutions Semester is simple: for half a year, third and fourth-year students work together on (possibly) your challenge. The teams consist of six to eight students from a variety of degree programmes, giving each team a unique mix of experience, skills and talents.  

To increase the impact of this cross-pollination of disciplines, each project will also be assigned to a cluster. A cluster consists of three or four project teams working on the same or a very similar research question, with you as a client benefiting from this mutual knowledge development and sharing.  

Why Smart Solutions?
