Challenge@PoliTo_by Firms is an innovative teaching activity carried at the Politecnico di Torino. It is an integral part of PoliTo's strategy to promote innovative education and entrepreneurial culture. These activities are organized with external firms that provide a "challenge" coming from their real business. During the experience, up to 30 master students divided in teams, work, compete and develop their solutions. The Challenges are carried out in an experimental educational laboratory: the CLIK - Connection Lab & Innovation Kitchen, or similar space. During the challenge phase at the CLIK lab, students can experiment and practice what they have learned during their lectures in an informal and multidisciplinary environment that promotes the spirit of creativity and collaboration. Challenge@PoliTo_by Firms - Energy for homes, a home for energy The current energy transition challenges us to build city districts that are not just highly energy efficient but also green, comfortable and affordable. This challenge is promoted by EGEA, one of the largest Italian energy services companies, which provides electricity, natural gas and district heating to dwellings and industries. The scope of the challenge is to conceive the new headquarters of the firm in Alba, in a site currently already in use, that is next the historic city centre, the Tanaro river and the famous terroirs of Barolo. The renewed settlement is intended to host more than 400 people, a built surface of 8,500 sqm, with 4,300 sqm of open and green areas. The new headquarters are intended to show an “house of energy” that does not forget the past but looks steadily at the future. Its redesign should be guided by the principles of carbon neutrality of buildings and services, well-being and welfare for workers and visitors, innovation and preservation of the heritage, considering also the new work organization of the post-Covid era. Each team is asked to provide a design study on the new EGEA headquarters, taking into account the owners projects requirements and the site constraints, but also the expected cost of the renovation. The team will merge together architectural and urban designers, building physicists, energy, HVAC, electric and environmental engineers, sustainability experts, planners, project managers and other technical expertise, from the Politecnico di Torino University, that could be useful. You will work through an integrated design process exploiting the capabilities of the simulation-aided design and optimization in the various disciplines. The challenge is led by Professors: Enrico Fabrizio (DENERG - ING-IND/11) and Davide Rolfo (DAD - ICAR/14).

The main goal is to involve students in learning initiatives capable of bridging the gap between the university's theory and the skills required by companies to work in a team. Entrepreneurial Culture: Promote the Entrepreneurial culture/behavior on the PoliTo Students. Multidisciplinary Teams: Collaborate in a complex and multidisciplinary context. Information research: Retrieval, Data collection and Utilization of information to support teamwork activities. Hard Skills: Put into practice what they have learned during their lectures to solve a real problem from partner firms. Soft Skills: Teamwork under conditions close to a real business environment, self-assessment and work organization. At the end of this activity, students will be readier to work in a multidisciplinary team, a skill required by companies. They will be able to analyze industrial problems having a more comprehensive view of technical and market issues.

The Challenge is open to every master students of the Politecnico di Torino. There are not specific competence requested to be eligible for participating. To apply to this activity, the students have to upload: ● Covering Letter in English: self-presentation and motivations of interest in the presented Challenge; ● Curriculum Vitae. The students' selection will be based on Cover Letter, CV and multidisciplinary required by the Challenge. The Challenge contents are provided in English.

The Challenges last 14 weeks; they start on the 27th September 2021 and end on the 14th January 2022. During Challenges, students have to work in multidisciplinary teams supported by a group of tutors, coming from PoliTo and partner Firm, with complementary backgrounds and competencies, under the lead of Professors Enrico Fabrizio and Davide Rolfo. Every team will self-organize its own working time and methodology. But, it will have to spend about 1,5 hours/week, supported by mentors, in the CLIK Lab, similar space or in remote (clarifications will be provided), in addition to the joint alignment meetings (specified subsequently). During the next academic year (21/22), according to the Rector guideline, Politecnico is going to deliver in-person classes in line with the national vaccine campaign that should allow a serene and flexible return to our classrooms. However, in order to guarantee the sustainability of a safe teaching reorganization, a limited amount of activities may be held remotely. For instance: ● Weekly meetings team-mentor (1,5h/week): they could be provided remotely if there are not specific needs to meet in person; ● Alignment meetings: they will be provided in person, but they can also be provided online for students under specific conditions and expressly authorized. In the event of travel limitations imposed by the government, international students will have the opportunity to attend online-live classes.

The event will take place at the Lab CLIK (Connection Lab and Innovation Kitchen) located in the central building of the Politecnico di Torino (Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24), in a similar space or in a remote way, with the following program: ● Kick-Off & Team Formation: the partner company and tutors will hold a session on the Challenge's issues. There will be the Team Formation and Team Building phases to the establishment of multidisciplinary teams. Joint meeting of 2 days. ● Problem Analysis and Idea Creation: two weeks in which the teams will analyze the problem in detail. A team of mentors will support the teams through weekly meetings. ● Idea Presentation – 1st Work Progress: each team will present (by a pitch) the problem and the proposed solution. Joint meeting of half-day. ● Prototyping and Development: teams will meet at CLIK (or similar space or remote way) weekly to meet with mentors who will support the project's development. 11 weeks of teamwork. ● Two Mid-Check Presentations – 2nd and 3rd Work Progress: two half-day meetings on work progress during the Prototyping and Development phase. ● Final Presentation: the teams will present their projects through the pitch of the idea. Joint meeting of half-day at the end of the 14th week. During the Challenge, PoliTo will provide other educational contents (workshops) useful for developing the Team ideas and personal culture. For example: Business Plan creation, Social Impact, Communication & Pitch Learning, etc. The dates will be defined during the next months. Every team will self-organize its own working timeframe and methodology, but will have to spend about 1,5 hours/week, supported by mentors, in the CLIK Lab, in a similar space or remote (clarifications will be provided). The Teams, during the Challenge, have to hand in the following deliverables: • Three ppts Work Progress: Pitches to explain achieved outcomes and next steps of the project, during work progress meetings; • One monthly report: a monthly report to describe achieved outcomes and next steps; • One ppt Final Presentation: final pitch, during the final presentation, to present the whole work; • One final report: final report about whole work. PoliTo will provide a standard form. The explained structure is only an example; it could be modified during the Challenge.
