iDay featuring SkillMill

Join us online for a series of iDays to boost your innovational spirit, work with fellow students across faculty borders and create solutions to real challenges. Learn practical tools such as innovation process and pitching skills and put them to practice.

First Friday of every month during spring 2021 you have the posibility to become a part of an iDay team. Join one - or all four - events. The process is the same, but the challenge will be different every time and featured by the SkillMill project, focusing on soft skills.

Event dates and links to application:
Deadline 3 days before event. There is a maximum of 50 participants per event.

Time: 12:00 -17:00 (CET)

Location: Digital venue in GatherTown. Link will be sent to you by email the day prior to the event.

What is iDay?
IDay is a concept by EIT Health that lets you join five-hour design jams that combine training in innovation process with design challenges provided by real-world actors for change. Work interdisciplinary with fellow students across faculty boundaries to train your innovation-, problem solving- and pitching skills.

The Design Challenges during spring 2021 are provided by the international Erasmus+ SkillMill project.

What is SkillMill?
Bring your hidden skills to light. While schooling provides us with knowledge, the ever-changing world around us is constantly challenging us to improvise, adapt and overcome. This is world-class soft skills training, but how do we track this training - and are we even aware of it? SkillMill's expert group of career counselors, psychologists, and game designers want to solve this challenge through design and innovation. Your daily life gives you the training – we build the SkillMill app that provides the reflection and tracking. But can such an app even be made? Maybe it can – with your help.

SkillMill is a three-year collaboration project between Uppsala University, University Helsinki (Finland), University of Stavanger (Norway) and University of Tartu (Estonia), co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the Europan Union.
