Most of the educational projects are run in partnership with different organisations, like PERH (the regional hospital in Estonia), Nordica (Estonian airline company), Baltika (the biggest Baltic fashion brand house) or Jeld-Wen (the world’s largest door manufacturer). Other projects tackle wide themes like Work 2.0, Preventive Healthcare or Re-inventing Retail, where students search for new opportunities how to create value and sketch concept solutions.
The outcome of Studio Projects is not predefined. Students have to find the opportunities themselves, redefine and articulate the problems to be solved in a new way and then create innovative proposals, products, apps, services or product-service systems. This process is a way to test and practice skills and knowledge learned in theory lessons, but as well a link between the academic world and everyday life.
