Eight teams of MBA students of SAFM and phd students
of the Politecnico di Torino, with a background of high technical level, which
over the next five months will work in Geneva and in Turin between training
sessions and group work. Within each team must be present transversal skills to
promote a diversified approach on both the theoretical and practical plan.
The project will
also involve collaboration with several institutions and companies, will
indicate to the students the challenges on which to focus their efforts to find
practical solutions: These partners will propose the global challenges based on
the 17 United Nation Goals for sustainable development.
The next phase is
dedicated to the creation of the model solution and will last five
months, until June. Students will be supported by alumni SAFM who have become
entrepreneurs or work in large industrial groups, as well as by researchers at
CERN and Politecnico. In their work they can use tools and advanced technology
solutions, but already widely used and tested, up to the realization of prototypes
ready for the next phase of development for the market. IdeaSquare, the experimental structure of CERN dedicated to
projects of research and development and interdisciplinary programs, will be at
the students’ disposal to work on these projects. In support of the
working groups will be provided with various resources from the Politecnico and
CERN, in the form of access to research, patents and technologies, in addition
to the involvement of teachers, scientists and experts. At deadline, each team
must submit the designed solution and the technology that underlies it.
Finally, a panel of top talent will decide the winning design. Food and Health
were the 2017 edition themes. SoundBubble, the winning project,
is a software for
smartphones that solve noise issues in work environments. It let you select the
sounds and voices you want to hear and the people you want to talk to,
excluding all the other surrounding noise.
