Call for applications: French-Dutch Creathon “Health and well-being in the built environment” [fr]
The Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the French-Dutch Network (RFN), the Institut Français des Pays-Bas and NUFFIC are co-organizing the creathon “Health and well-being in the built environment” on the 6th-8th June 2018 in Eindhoven. Applications are open until 14/05/2018.
A ‘creathon’ brings young people together as they work in teams on a specific topic and compete against each other to come up with innovative solutions to current issues. The best proposed project will receive a prize.
This Creathon will gather stakeholders from companies, local government and higher education institutions who work on issues of healing environments.
The call for applications is aimed at students and young professionals (10 from France and 10 from the Netherlands; under the age of 30), whose field of study or professional activity can be related not only to architecture or urban planning but other disciplines such as green chemistry, health, engineering (public transport, civil engineering..), history, geography, psychology, sociology, design and art are welcomed in order to cover the whole chain of thought, development and production of a common final team project.
The ‘Health and well-being in the built environment’ Creathon is an invitation to boldness, optimism and young people’s commitment to their future.
All costs related to participation (travel, meals, and lodging) of the selected candidates will be covered by the event organisers.
The teams will be composed of members that do not know each other in advance, and mixed between French and Dutch attendees.
The working language will be English.
