What is TurkuLab Challenge?

The goal of the TurkuLab challenge is to innovate and develop new solutions that improve the daily lives of students and TYS residents together with leading businesses and public sector organizations in Turku.

The new solutions will help to build better

  • student accommodation
  • community spirit
  • digital services
  • sustainable development.

The TurkuLab Challenge consists of five events. Max. 100 candidates will be selected to participate in each event based on the ideas submitted via TurkuLab online platform. The best 20 candidates from each event will be invited to the finale: 100 innovators will compete for the main prize in the finale held at Logomo.

The total value of TurkuLab prizes will be over 20,000 euro. The main prize for the TurkuLab Challenge is 7,000 euro.

Do you want to participate?

  • Are you a student?
  • Do you have an outstanding idea or have you identified a problem that needs to be fixed?
  • An idea is a great place to start, since you can develop it later in the contest into a more complete solution.

It is also possible to support your friends and rate ideas submitted by other candidates. Or you can submit your own innovation and develop it with the help of leading business mentors.

You can become involved in TurkuLAB Challenge in social media, on TurkuLab website, in TYS student accommodation and in TurkuLab events.

The partners for TurkuLAB Challenge are The Student Village Foundation of Turku (Turun Ylioppilaskyläsäätiö), Boost Turku, OP Bank Turun Seutu, Talokeskus, TeliaSonera, Turku Energia, Legioona ja Unica.
