Results achieved Main outcomes

The students merge together, with their different educational backgrounds and find that they can collaborate and work on the same case and contribute with their specific skills. The students also experience great recognition from one and another and see their own prior skills more clearly. The students are strengthened in their both individual and common professionalism and participate with great motivation.

Good practice Best practice

It has been identified that the outcome of the 3 days event has a great impact on all participant. Especially the companies that are involved and delivering cases and the students working on the case. The fact that skills are so clearly in focus, should underline which skills are prior, which skills are needed now and perhaps also which skills are needed in the future.
