CLIK - Contamination Lab & Innovation Kitchen is an experimental educational laboratory conceived as a major part of PoliTo’s strategy to foster innovative education and entrepreneurial culture. It is a place in which students can experiment and put into practice what they have learnt during their lectures, in an informal and multidisciplinary environment that promotes a spirit of creativity, collaboration. An external firm provides a “challenge” coming from its real business and, during the experience, 30 students divided in teams work, compete and develop their solution. Challenge@CLIK - CLEAR - miCro pLastic freE wAteR The challenge proposed by ROLD, a leading manufacturer of components for the appliances sector and supplier of the largest manufacturers of household appliances (white goods), requires the ideation and design of solution for the environmental problem of microplastics emitted in particular by washing machines. In fact, more than 35% of these come from the washing of synthetic clothing and enter into circulation due to the discharge water of the appliances. Following the introduction of the EU Ecolabel, all the next washing machines will have to be equipped with a solution that filters or removes microplastics in wastewater.

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 team according the multidisciplinarity required by companies and analyze the problem having a comprehensive view of technical and market issues.

Some of the main focal points of the Challenge are the followed: 1. To devise a system / process capable of separating the microplastics from the water discharge of a washing machine and allowing its removal / extraction / destruction. 2. Analyze price and useful life of the filter and the economic impact of the price on the customer. 3. Acquisition of data about the developed process coming from washing machine through sensors and management of them through the cloud (Azure).The

Challenge duration is 14 weeks, total stackable of didactic period. During the Challenge the students have to work in multidisciplinary Teams supported by tutors and partner firm. Every team have to work about 1,5 hour/week in the CLIK Lab, beyond the common alignment meetings. The event will take place at the Lab CLIK (Contamination Lab and Innovation Kitchen), located in the central building of the Politecnico di Torino (Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24), with the following program: ● Kick Off & Team Building: the partner company and tutors will hold a session on the issues of the challenge. There will be the team building for the establishment of multidisciplinary teams. Common meetings of 2 days. Date: 7th and 8th October. ● Problem Analysis and Idea Creation: two weeks in which the teams will analyze the problem in details. A team of mentors will support the teams through scheduled meetings. ● Idea Presentation: each team will present (by a pitch) the problem and the proposed solution. Common meeting of 1 day. ● Prototyping and Development: teams will meet at CLIK on a weekly basis to meet with mentors who will provide support to the development of the project. 11 weeks of team work. ● Mid-Term Presentation: common meeting of 1 day in the middle of Prototyping and Development phase. ● Final Presentation: the teams will present their projects through the pitch of the idea. Common meeting of 1 day at the end of the 11th week. The remaining undefined dates will be defined during the challenge. Could be organized a visit in the partner company building. Every team have to work about 1,5 hour/week in the CLIK Lab, supported by tutors and partner firm. The provided structure is only an example, it could be modified during the challenge.

Modalità di esame: Accertamento;
The Challenge is open to every master student of Politecnico di Torino. The student can register individually or in multidisciplinary teams. The multidisciplinarity of the group will be evaluated during the selection phase of the members and in the Team Building phase. In this same phase, the participating teams will be created and approved. The multidisciplinarity of the team is a fundamental parameter for the correct development of the Challenge itself. The verification procedure is based on: - The development of project on an evaluation grid; - Self-evaluation of team members; - Quality of the presentation during the common meeting. This activity does not have a score, only passed/not passed.
