City-Insights has been given a rare opportunity to be Project Champions, working with postgraduate students at the brand new Loughborough University in London.
Students develop their strategic and problem solving skills, as well as coordinating with local communities, businesses and social groups.
Working alongside City-Insights, the students will engage with an emergent industry, digital placemaking, and work in interdisciplinary research groups to produce potentially actionable results.
After four months (January 2016) the students 'pitch' their research and solutions to a panel, Dragon’s Den-style, with representatives from both the industry side of the module and the academic.
If they are good enough, we move forward to refine and action their ideas.
"We are working with interdisciplinary groups of students from across the globe - it is a real melting pot of ideas, skills and expertise producing some fascinating results"
