EXPAND, a challenge-based idea accelerator

EXPAND, a challenge-based idea accelerator

We are a partner of this Erasmus+ project on societal issues for university students and teaching staff.

The main goal of EXPAND is to develop a 4-month idea accelerator program for future entrepreneurs tackling systemic problems in society.

The project will disseminate a practical toolbox with the best practices to replicate the accelerator in other universities or institutions. By stimulating social entrepreneurship in students, we'll be setting up the scene for the future problem solvers of society.

Through its pilot year, Expand will focus on addressing the challenge of homelessness. In the last available global survey, about 100 million people worldwide were estimated to be homeless, with as many as 1,6 billion lacking adequate housing. Social entrepreneurship can be a valuable help, bringing the best out of diversity, innovation, and problem-solving potential.
