Challenge _By Firms

The Challenge@PoliTo_By Firms are innovative teaching activities carried out within the spaces of the Politecnico di Torino, in particular at the CLIK Lab (Connection Lab and Innovation Kitchen).
Master’s Degree students must identify their own innovative idea that solves a challenge launched by a large or SME, an institution or an association.

The challenges last one semester, equal to 14 weeks, and are carried out in two predefined teaching periods, October/January and March/June, in correspondence with the lessons. The challenges are entirely in English.
Students are divided into groups of 5-6 people, work hard to overcome the challenge by developing the most promising idea and are supported by professors and mentors, both from a technical and business point of view. Some in-depth workshops will be held, on topics concerning the chosen macro theme.
In the development phase, the teams can use numerous electronic devices (such as Arduino and Raspberry boards, sensors, actuators etc.) as well as two 3D printers useful for the eventual prototyping phase.

At the end of the activities, each team will make a presentation pitch of the project, followed by a moment of Q&A and demonstration of the prototype or solution. By promoting this activity, the University seeks to stimulate students’ entrepreneurship and encourage development from a simple business idea to a real start-up.
