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, 30 master students divided in teams, work, compete and develop their solutions. The Challenges are carried out as 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 Students – “Space Economy: Take your start up to space” Today we hear more and more about the Space Economy. In recent years, space has become a fundamental resource for monitoring the Earth, for the use of telecommunications, for observation and geo-location services. The use of satellite services and the data collected from space are already part of our daily life, and they are assets able to anticipate the needs of our society, improving our lives. The constantly growing, combined, use of space assets with Information and Communication Technologies is representing the backbone of the New Space Economy. The space sector, which for a long time has benefited mainly from institutional financial support, is witnessing an ambitious intervention of private investors. Space technologies, therefore, appropriately combined with the most advanced Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), represent the technological and business trend that will characterize the possibility for many companies, in various sectors, to increase their competitiveness on a global scale through innovation at all levels - from product/service, to processes, up to the overall business model. In this context, the recently founded ESA Business Incubation Centre (ESA BIC) Turin will support the growth of new Italian space-related startups. The activities, carried out in coordination with ASI and ESA, aim to offer to the selected startups several opportunities for technological development, business coaching and mentoring, legal advice, access to capital for growth and integration into the Italian and European industrial ecosystem. The participating students will be asked to conceive new and innovative technologies through the combination of current space-related technologies and ICT. The fields of application may be of different nature: • Earth observation • Satellite communication • Mobility • Agriculture • Energy • Robotics/mechatronics or materials • Environmental monitoring • Satellite navigation or mobile services The aim of the Challenge will be the creation of a new startup, able to take advantage of the support provided by ESA BIC Turin and its partner network.

The main goal is to involve students in learning initiatives capable of bridging the gap between the theory taught by the University and the skills required to work in a team by companies. 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 learnt during their lectures in order to resolve a real problem coming from partner firms. Soft Skills: Teamwork under conditions close to the ones of 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 master students of Politecnico di Torino. No specific competence are required to participate. To apply on this activity, students have to upload: ● Cover Letter in English: self-presentation and expression of interest in the challenge; ● Curriculum Vitae. The selection of the students will be based on Cover Letter, CV and multidisciplinarity required by the Challenge. The Challenge contents will be provided in English.

The Challenges last 14 weeks; they start on the 28th February 2022 and end on the 11th June 2022. During this specific Challenge, the 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 professor Sabrina Corpino and professor Fabio Dovis. 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 this 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 mode, according to the following schedule: ● 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 gathered at CLIK (or similar space or remote mode) weekly to meet 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, other educational contents (workshops) useful for developing the team ideas and personal culture will be given (i.e. 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, it will have to spend at least about 1,5 hours/week, supported by mentors, in the CLIK Lab, similar space or in remote meetings, in addition to the joint alignment meetings (clarifications will be subsequently specified). 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 aforementioned structure is an overall example; it could be modified during the Challenge as needed.
