The course is suitable for students from any discipline and teams will be formed as multidisciplinary teams consisting of students from different universities and countries. The focus is on wellbeing in the context of forest bioeconomy. In the previous implementations, the students have been for example from teacher education, IT engineering, forestry, biology, business, law and administration and environmental sciences. Our working life partners will present problems and cases from their operations and the student teams will design a solution (product, process, service, procedure, etc.) for it together with forest bioeconomy experts from working life. Multidisciplinary problem solving and developmental ways of working will be trained. Experts, research knowledge and different technologies are utilised for designing the solution. The course work in teams and with our working life partners will increase your future skills, the so called 21st century skills. The solutions will be shared on the online platform. Technology that enhances interaction and place and time independence will be utilised and supported during the course.
WIll be made available in an online platform.
The teams will work closely with the working life partners, which are companies, public bodies and associations.
