The Intensive Programme “Mind the Gap” is targeted at second and third year bachelor students, and will be a 10-day “workshop”, built around one central project challenge. International multidisciplinary teams of about 4 to 5 students (ca. 50/50 art/IT) will cooperate on building a (web) application prototype which offers a solution for a relevant community problem.
Possible challenges could be “build an application which helps narrowing the gap between the rich and the poor in Europe” or “build an application which will help slow down the rising of the sea levels”. These kind of “open” challenges will not only stimulate the creative process, they also promote European citizenship and social and intercultural awareness.
