Create Tomorrow 2020 was originally scheduled for April and later postponed to October because of the corona crisis. Now a new date and form have been announced: the event will take place online at the end of May.
The concept remains the same. For 24 hours (from Thursday evening to Friday evening), students work in teams of 4-8 people and think of solutions to cases posted by participating companies. The goal is to come up with innovative ideas that help the companies during and after the corona crisis. At the end of the day, each company chooses their case winner and an independent jury nominates the overall winner. The winning team will take home € 1000.
The think tank will include challenges from different sectors. For example, the province of Overijssel and Rijkswaterstaat have already promised to bring in a case, as have ECIU-University and VolkerWessels Telecom. Twente hospitals MST and ZGT are joining forces and will also present a challenge to the students.
