Each year, industry partners submit Challenges or Team Projects for the Summer School.  Alongside experienced mentors and coaches, participants respond to these Challenges by collaborating in small interdisciplinary teams with peers from around the world. Participants and Challenge sponsors gain diverse perspectives, combine resources to solve real-world problems, and build sustainable connections.

In 2021, seven (7) companies or organizations not only submitted Challenges, but also sent participants to the Summer School. Here are the summaries of the seven (7) projects presented in a pecha kucha format.
