On the 12th of May Intermate’s first Case Contest will take place!
In interdisciplinary teams of 4-5 students, you will have to tackle two challenging problems concerning the renewal of the Vestdijk!
You know, that big road you cycle on every other day right through the city center of Eindhoven? The municipality of Eindhoven and Witteveen + Bos are joining forces to renew this road. Why? Because the concentration of emissions is way too high surrounding the Vestdijk, the road has to be transformed into a new, more sustainable street. A lot of actors are involved that will feel this change: Residents, car drivers, traffic cyclist, businesses on the Vestdijk etc.
During this contest, there will be three problem statements that you can solve. You can choose whether you want to tackle all three, or do one or two problems more thoroughly. The cases will vary in subject, from user acceptance and implementation to sustainability possibilities.
Schedule of the day
The event will cover the entire evening and we will start around 18:00 with free dinner.
The case will last from 19:00 to 22:00. We will conclude with a round of pitches from each team.
