UNIC Creathon

Get involved in the Creathon and influence the future of education

Are you a student? Would you like to make changes in your university?
You should register for the UNIC Creathon!

The UNIC Creathon is a virtual pressure cooker event (24 hours) where teams compete to develop innovative solutions for educational challenges.


How does it work?

  • Apply to join. 5 participants per university will be selected at random and assigned to different teams.
  • Students from the 8 UNIC universities work in a virtual platform in mixed teams of 5 to develop solutions for existing challenges in our European University.
  • Expert guides support and advise their team to the finish line.
  • At the end of the event, each team pitches their idea in front of a professional jury to determine the winner(s).


Who can join?

  • Bachelors and Master students from all disciplines.
  • Students from the UNIC partner universities: Erasmus University Rotterdam, University of Liege, University College Cork, Koc University, University of Deusto, Ruhr University Bochum, University of Oulu, University of Zagreb.


What's in it for me?

  • 1st prize winners receive a letter of recommendation signed by the UNIC Rector and an invitation to present their idea at the UNIC CityLabs Festival held in October 2021.
  • International networking. Not only do you get a chance to work with students from other universities, you also get a chance to network with educators, researchers, and NGO staff from all over Europe.
  • Connecting directly with key decision-makers. The Creathon Jury consists of Rectors, Presidents, and Directors from the UNIC universities.
