Undertaking contest for undergraduates, “Undertaking is an art”

Undertaking is an activity that requires a series of knowledge, several skills and a lot of attitude. Given its multidisciplinary nature CEU Universities offers students the necessary technical preparation either in the form of subjects within compulsory topics of a degree or in the form of workshops, conferences or extracurricular activities.

This is the case of CEU Emprende, a transversal initiative to all our centres and academic stages addressed to students and professionals aimed at promoting the undertaking initiative; or of undertaking clubs of our universities and initiatives.

Undertaking Contest BCN Digital Challenge

Today we talk about one of those initiatives, in particular the 11th Edition of BCN Digital Challenge of the Undertaking Club of Universidad Abat Oliba CEU in Barcelona; an undertaking contest in which university students of the Spanish territory present innovative solutions to actual problems.

This edition is focused on the resolution of social problems related to Sustainable Development Objectives (ODS for its Spanish initials). Participants will respond with their proposals to the three challenges presented during one week of work guided by the projects’ accelerator WOW Startups which will be in charge of walking participants through the whole conception process to achieve the final prototype.

As detailed in the contest’s rules, participants have total freedom to present their ideas but there is a minimum requirement; that their ideas are capable of identifying a problem, their solution and their feasibility. They may opt for different methods such as for example the Design Thinking to reach a clear, justified, innovative solution and specially to be able to be developed.

Finalists will present their undertaking projects in a ceremony next 23rd March 2023 with the attendance of professionals of the world of undertaking to assess from a more professional point of view their cutting-edge proposals. After presentations, the contest will be closed with different artistic representation, live music…and much more!

As backbone story of this new edition of BCN Digital Challenge they have chosen artistic expression highlighting that undertaking is a sort of art given its connection to creativity and audacity.
