A great bridge builder between school and working life!

On Thursday 20 October, in relation to the Bridges deliverable 11.5 Innovation Camps, the Blue Innovation Camp will be held at Hitra and Frøya, a collaborative project between the Blue Competence Center, Young Entrepreneurship Trøndelag and Guri Kunna upper secondary school.

The event focuses on creativity and innovation. A close collaboration with local businesses is central to the innovation camp, where participating aquaculture companies deliver each their own current operational challenge for students to solve. Students will be divided into groups and each be given one of the challenges to solve and will then present their solution proposal to the participating industry panels.

Tenth graders from all over Trøndelag will visit the island region participating in aquaculture activities at the coastal museum Kystmuseet, get a boat ride from Guri Kunna students to visit their sea fisheries and finally have dinner at the renown Hotell Frøya after completing the Blue Innovation Camp competition.

Due to covid restrictions during Blue Innovation Camp 2020, the organizers had to come up with innovative solutions, so the camp became wholly digital. This was such a success that we have decided to continue this concept as a new tradition!

The digital camp will be held on October 18th, 19th and 25th 2022.
