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 - Fill up with green energy in motorway The switch to electric mobility will require a radical change in motorway infrastructure. A large amount of energy will have to be made available in the rest areas to support, in addition to the more classic uses (refreshments, air conditioning, lighting, etc.), the recharging of electric vehicles in their different technologies. This energy will increasingly be made available by technologies based on renewable sources. However, such a technological ecosystem based on highly random energy sources and loads depends on many external factors. To make this ecosystem sustainable, we need to think about how to store energy. The size of a storage system, as well as its optimal management, is, therefore, the more accurate the more precise are the forecasting capabilities that take into account the possible variations of all interacting factors on the related decision models. The Challenge is to define tools aimed at the preliminary design of the storage system and/or its optimal management that can consider the various external factors that will have to be identified by the teams as determining or critical factors. Therefore, the Challenge's central part will be to identify which internal and external factors impact the storage system's choice and management. Moreover, the teams will have to find suitable methodologies to put together all the relevant information for the optimal management system. The Challenge's final result will have to be a model capable of choosing and managing the storage system and making decisions based on both real-time data and future forecasts. Some examples of criteria to be considered are energy cost, storage cost, weather, expected traffic, etc.

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 1st March 2021 and end on the 18th June 2021. 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 Aldo Canova. 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). According to the Rector guideline, the Challenges of the second didactic period A.Y. 20/21, will always be guaranteed also in remote mode. We will provide other information on the possibility of providing them in a blended way (presence and remote).

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.
