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 Firms – “Hail-Care” Hailstorms are dangerous and costly phenomena that occurs on all continents in areas with a temperate, tropical and subtropical climate. These events are expected to worsen in response to climate change and global warming: recent observations and modelling lead to the general conclusion that hailstorm frequency will increase in Australia and Europe, while hail severity will increase in most regions. Any vehicle left outdoors during a hailstorm is susceptible to damage. In 2021, considering only the European countries, 4,345 events were detected and an estimated 970,000 vehicles were damaged. Typical damages are large or small dents in the hood, doors, side panels or trunk of vehicles; these signs are typically not uniform, may not damage the paint and may not cover the entire vehicle. Paintless dent repair (PDR) is the state-of-the-art repair process that involves the removal of hail dents or other types of damage from metal exterior surface panels without disturbing the vehicle's finish. To date, the repair is carried out with a completely manual method, with specialized tools to apply pressure to the backside of the panel to remove surface imperfections. The times and costs for the restoration, depending on the severity of the damage, can be long and very expensive. The aim of the challenge is to propose new repairing methodologies to improve the automation of the process and decrease its cost. In particular, teams are challenged to: • propose automatic techniques to detect and classify the dents located in different positions of the carbody; • propose new repairing solutions that can be easily used in automated systems like, for examples, eddy currents, pneumatic systems, ... • define kpi that classify the result of the repairing and propose procedures to evaluate the quality of the repair.

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 in September/October 2022 and end in January 2023. 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 Fabio Freschi (DENERG). 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).

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.

Modalità di esame: Accertamento (esame senza voto);
Exam: Check;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Check;
The Challenge is open to master students of Politecnico di Torino. Each student can apply individually. The CFUs, curricular as well as extra credits, will be awarded at the end of the Challenge and only if the student will have passed the course. The verification procedure is based on: • The Development of the project on an evaluation grid; • Quality of the presentation during the joint meetings; • Reports (monthly and final); • Self-evaluation of team members. This activity does not have a grade, only passed/not passed.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
