❤️ Why you should do it

Working in an I Living Lab acts as a trigger to improve your future skills, like analytical thinking and problem-solving abilities, showing creativity in dealing with obstacles and learning to deal with uncertainties.

Creativity is one of the most important key competencies  of our time

Creative industries are not only important for a region’s identity and the preservation of its cultural heritage – they have also been among the first to experiment with and adopt digital technologies.

Join us in shaping creative industries across Europe!

I Living Lab FAQs

Participation in an I Living Labs is open to all students from E³UDRES² partnering institutions, except for those from the hosting institution (St. Pölten UAS), as the slots for this university are already full. In case of questions, please get in touch with your local E³UDRES² contacts at your institution or write us at office(at) so we can connect you!

Together with international students you will tackle a real-life problem and search for solutions. Every student has a different background and comes from a different study program. This makes it easy to come up with transdisciplinary solutions.

Not at all. If you're open to develop a creative mindset, you'll find the experience easy. Just open your mind and go with the flow! Use the skills you have and develop new skills during the Intensive I Living Lab!

Of course! For participating in the Intensive I Living Lab, you will get 3 ECTS.

Your team will consist of European students coming from all across our E³UDRES² partnering institutions. Some of them are also Erasmus students, which means that you can even have students from all around the world in your team.

Next to students, you'll also have a coach on your team (your Educational Entrepreneur), and the challenge owner.

The coach, or educational entrepreneur, is often a teacher from one of the higher education institutions involved in E³UDRES². They will guide you through the Intensive I Living Lab, and give you insights into the method of Design Thinking. They will also help if you are lost, and offer interesting pieces of information as well as guidance to your team.
