Sustainability, change agility and innovation in a Nordic framework

Are you a bachelor student at the University of Agder eager to solve complex problems and showcase your solutions on an international arena?

In 2022, six Nordic Business Schools and universities (UiA School of Business and Law, Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Copenhagen Business School, Lund University, BI and Reykjavik University) will launch the first edition of the Nordic Case Challenge. Students from across the Nordic region will have an opportunity to contribute and participate in the initial challenge: A real life problem for a real-life company.

The challenge will start on January 21! The company supplying the case challenge will be presented the very same day across all participating Business Schools and Universities.

You and your team will have 10 days to come up with a sustainable solution for the company. The winning team from two schools from each country will be invited to Iceland on March 16-20 to pitch their solution and participate in the final case challenge. The winners will be announced live in Reykjavik on Saturday 19 March.

We will be hosting an info meeting on Zoom on January 10 where you are invited to learn more about the challenge with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Date and time: January 10, 15:00 

Why focus on “Nordic” and why on sustainability, change agility and innovation?

We believe that a Nordic focus in this case challenge will enhance our students and send a strong signal to the rest of the world that “Nordic” is more than cuisine and design:

For example, Iceland has the highest share of renewable energy in any national total energy budget, but is ranked lower because Iceland sells its energy quotas and “takes on” pollution.

Norway is racing ahead in the electric mobility race, according to a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF), with almost half of all new passenger car sales in the country last year (2020) being either electric or hybrid vehicles. (Iceland is 2, Sweden 4, Finland 5 and Denmark 13)
According Bloomberg’s annual index, the Nordic countries are within the top 20 most innovative economies in the world.

The Nordic region is an area of excellence and inspiration when working with university students in a case competition setting. Students from all over the Nordics are uniquely positioned to provide strong and innovative solutions to difficult case problems related to business, sustainability, and innovation.

 

Looking forward to seeing you and the solutions you will provide!
