At a Digital Impact Day, students from different universities and a wide range of disciplines come together to work on a topic of a cooperation partner. After a short introduction, they work on the challenge in small groups with coaching and then pitch their results at the end of the workshop.
The idea of the Digital Impact Day is based on the concept “Skarpt Uppdrag” from the University of Midsweden. Find more information here.
SKARPT UPPDRAG™ changed everything for me. It has opened up completely new avenues and interests for me. More concretely, I got to know students from other programs. By extension, it took me to San Francisco, although it was just a stop on the road. But I really feel like I can see the world from completely new eyes because of these experiences.
I really enjoyed the DID while working in an interdisciplinary, multinational team to innovate impactful solutions and expand my understanding of a sustainable future. I highly recommend this valuable experience to anyone interested in contributing to a brighter tomorrow.
