DIVE IN to the new Blue SDU Student Think Tank

Do you like a challenge? Are you interested in the maritime industry? Are you ready to take on solving real-world problems with an interdisciplinary group of similarly interested students?


Then our Blue SDU Student Think Tank is definitely something for you. During the think tank experience, an important stakeholder within the maritime industry, with faculty consultation, will ask you to meet a timely and complex challenge they are currently facing. You will join an interdisciplinary team of fellow students, and within a dedicated time framework of about a week, you will generate innovative, strategic solutions to the problem at stake. The stakeholder will evaluate and judge all solutions, and you will be invited to participate in the Danish Maritime Fair to present these solutions to national and international maritime stakeholders. During these Danish Maritime Days (Oct 26-28, 2016, the winning team will also be announced -- and its members awarded with a substantial prize.


You find more information on the Blue SDU Think Tank in the attached document, together with application procedures.


We are looking forward to welcoming you into the Think Tank
