Invention Summer Camp Wageningen

May 17th 2019

Which new concepts and ideas can contribute to make the Campus futureproof in the field of physical studying conditions, social interaction and healthy living? Invention Summer Camp 2019 challenges multidisciplinary students and student teams to come up with their original, innovative and climate friendly solutions!

Proper Balance

Students, employees, guests and visitors from other organizations work, live, network and study on Wageningen Campus and all need an inspiring environment and excellent facilities. A proper balance between the needs of residents and guests as well as a qualified infrastructure on the Campus leads to optimal productivity and excellent results.

In the 2019 edition of Invention Summer Camp studying, working and living conditions forms our central theme . We are on the quest for new concepts to be developed to concrete solutions and focus on two main subjects:

  • Physical Learning Environment
  • Social Interaction & Lifestyle

Physical Learning Environment

How do we create spaces which meet the different requirements of students? Following lectures, working in groups, rooms for discussion, silent spaces, relaxation rooms and possibilities inside and outside, etc. While the number of students grow, educational space is limited. Flexible, optimal available and multifunctional useable spaces and processes are core elements to offer students the diversity of needs they have and will have in the future.

Social Interaction and Lifestyle

Studying is more than just following lectures. Social interaction between students and other contacts, relaxation possibilities and for example healthy food also play a crucial role in the well-being of students.
