Demo Day – an innovation event for a sustainable future

Several dice with letters spelling "green mobility"

Demo Day is an innovation event arranged by the ENLIGHT consortium to boost the innovative skills of students from different faculties and curriculums at Uppsala and partnering universities in Europe. Each Demo day is organised around a real challenge in the society provided by public and/or private organisations/companies.

This year the focus of Demo Day is on sustainable energy transition and the case is delivered by the Region of Gotland and its partners. During three exciting days, you will work to find solutions to a real-life challenge on the theme of sustainable energy. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team with students from Uppsala University's all campuses and fields of studies. Experienced coaches will help you on the entire journey from problem to the accomplished idea.
