In early November, we had the honour to host our International Event, the Ideathon. The event was a showdown between two exceptional teams: UniBOss from AS Forlì-Bologna and Ad Mundum from AS Bucharest, following their advancement from the previous round in Terrassa, Spain.
In Munich, each team was assigned a challenging task by our partners GDT Systems and ANSYS. In their respective challenges, the teams spent 24 hours in dedicated rooms, using their skills and creativity to design innovative solutions for the problems proposed by the companies. The competition was intense, but the UniBOss team emerged victorious, showcasing great knowledge of the tool provided by ANSYS and an unconventional solution even the sponsor had not expected.
The Ideathon offered participants much more than just a competitive platform. Aside from the intellectual challenges, it also was an opportunity for cultural enrichment. The teams had the chance to explore Munich, diving into the city’s rich heritage and vibrant culture. Their experiences ranged from visiting the iconic Hofbräuhaus, one of the most ancient breweries of the city, to discovering hidden gems around the city, making their stay in Munich truly memorable.
Looking to the future, this successful first edition of the Ideathon marks the beginning of what we hope will be a series of such events. EUROAVIA aims to create more opportunities like this as International Events in next Business Years. We are excited about the prospect of hosting more Ideathons, or share our learnings with other Affiliated Societies for the next editions.
Congratulations to all the teams for their fantastic effort, and we look forward to future Ideathons with great anticipation.
