    A sucessfull collaboration for Idé-based organisations
    Apply now!

    The brief

    We need to find our way of becoming a natural platform for knowledge and spreading the word about the important questions for the working society of tomorrow. How do we do that? We know that questions such as equal rights, environment and social commitment is popular, despite great knowledge and experience we lack a given platform for these questions.

    The background

    Unionen as an idea-based organization, is driven by a strong commitment. We depend on dedicated individuals driven by the idea of the organisation and commitment to developing.

    The problem

    The challenge is to retain committed driven individuals! If Unionen together with the student organizations at colleges and universities (we have a lot in common) came together to collaborate on our challenges, how would such cooperation look like? How could we become a more affectionate platform where we develop and learn from each other. We want, and it’s important for us to develop togheter with today's students, they are tomorrow's labour market.

    The power of adult voluntary education in troubled urban areas
    Apply now!

    The brief

    How do we use folkbildningen (= adult voluntary education) to support the positive development in vulnerable areas in Norrköping? How do we become a natural part of the local communities?

    The background

    Our mission as studieförbund is to strengthen and develop democracy, making it possible for a greater diversity of people to influence their own lives and create commitment to participate in community development, equalize educational disparities and improve education in society and broaden interest and increase participation in cultural life.

    The problem

    We want to find a long-lasting and natural interaction, and not just exist in the areas during certain projects times. Folkbildningen can sometimes be seen as old-fashioned and the challenge is how we follow up with the development and meet the new needs. For example: How do we reach today's young people, what do they want our help with, and how we create these forums?

    Connected greenhouse for urban environment
    Apply now!

    The brief

    We are under development of our first product a smart and connected mini greenhouse, in which all maintenance (watering, lightning, temperature control etc) can be controlled distantly and cloud based in a mobile app (both interactive functionality as well as autonomous growing programs). Our greenhouse shall be considered an attractive premium living room product, designed after Scandinavian furniture design principals. Target customers are entrepreneurs and others who travel much and work both a lot and at irregular hours, living in larger cities, aware of trends and find it important to have an attractive home with exclusive interior products. They don’t necessary have to have “green fingers” and have long experience of home growing, more likely they previously haven’t had time, possibility and desire to maintain a home growing project our product is going to make it easy, flexible, attractive and trendy to grow vegetables and other plants at home.

    The background

    We are a recently started company and our niche is product innovations within sustainable and green development in urban environments, with focus on the combination of exclusive scandinavian product design and Internet of Things technology.

    The problem

    Our first version of the greenhouse is going to be in a pretty traditional greenhouse design, with no possible customizations of the product design. In the future we want to offer an alternative and more futuristic concept through a module based concept, which the customer can configure and build itself based on their individual need and taste (with standard modules that can be combined in many ways and create personal greenhouses). A major part of the software can probably be reused in this module based concept, but new, innovative hardware and product design solutions will be needed, for instance how the watering functionality should work. To summarize: A innovative, “out of the box” module based concept for a connected greenhouse, which is controlled by the existing software platform and is based on the same basic principals (Scandinavian design and Internet of Things technology). The students will have a great degree of freedom concerning product design, functionality and market.

    Management system - made fun!?
    Apply now!

    The brief

    Proposal of a system concept design to increase usability of the future Quality management system for the Business Area.

    The background

    The digital world developes rapidly. Examples are movies on Youtube, comunication on social media and advanced games, one example is World of warcraft. As the leading edge of high technology the Business Area wants to ensure that the quality management system is also in the forefront with elements of various digital phenomena.

    The problem

    Todays quality management system has taken the step from the cover with paper to electronic "paper" in the digital world . We believe that the operation could be taken from electronic "paper " to be digitized in a completely different way . There will always be an external requirement picture of a quality management system that must be met , but the way that processes, methods and tools are presented and used will need to be modernized and improved.

    Enhance the view for pilots in training
    Apply now!

    The brief

    What are the most important visual cues in a flight simulator 3D-environment? A flight simulator environment typically consists of a combination of real-world geographic data, 3D models and real-time effects. The project will be helped by a keen interest in areas such as HMI, databases, GIS and modern state- of-the-art visualization techniques in 3D.

    The background

    Example scenario: Comparison of rendering performance and the perceived realism and ability to navigate a built-up area consisting of: high-resolution geographic data, medium resolution geographic data and selected high-resolution buildings, medium resolution geographic data with a complete set of box buildings with generic textures.

    The problem

    A completely realistic 3D-environment is not possible for performance reasons, and it is important to know which parts of the environment that can be simplified, and how, while still being useful for the pilot as a training environment

    Environmentally friendly exhibitions
    Apply now!

    The brief

    Storbildsfabriken is a supplier of large format print solutions. We are a company that differs from the traditional printing companies, primarily through our clear core values and our way of looking at large format solutions more as a service than a product. We are moving forward right now, from only selling products to selling visibility and where the products are not the main thing but means for achieving the objectives.

    The background

    Right now, our industry is experiencing price pressure because more and more people are buying cheap prints from abroad such as Poland, China and so on without any regards to the environment and sustainability. The sustainability issue is extremely important for Storbildsfabriken and we have developed an environmental manifesto to be carbon dioxide neutral by 2025. We believe this is the most important thing we have done in the company's history and we also believe that the issue of sustainability can be the engine of a long term profitable business. We see great opportunities in our industry by taking the lead as an innovative environmental company with sustainability issues in focus. In 2016 we started a collaboration with LIU and a few professors of environment to give us a status of the current situation. The challenge now is to implement and fulfill our objectives. This will mean new business models, new technology, innovative solutions and a renewal of the brand as an innovative, modern environmental company.

    Resource Efficient District Heating
    Apply now!

    The brief

    "We will build the world's most resource-efficient region" is the vision of Tekniska verken. Part of the solution for a resource-efficient society is district heating. 95% of the district heating in Linköping comes from the energy recovery of different types of residual waste.

    The background

    As long as there is waste products from the society that can’t be reused or recycled, energy recovery and district heating is the environmentally best way to handle it limiting the environmental impact. This is resource-efficient and provides global climate benefits!

    The problem

    The message of resource-efficiency is based on complex system analyses that is difficult to communicate to customers and other stakeholders. How can we create a system understanding for resource efficient district heating and communicate its benefits to various stakeholders?

    Labour movement - what is the next major question to handle?
    Apply now!

    The brief

    Unionen is the largest trade union in Sweden (and one of the largest in the world) with more than 600 000 members. Our task is to represent our members both at the workplace and also by forming opinion towards politicians and other actors at the labor market. Everything we do, we do to make a better labor market.

    The background

    When we think about universal suffrage, that everybody should have a decent work environment, a couple of weeks’ vacation, it all seems like given. This is examples of questions that unions have fought for in the past. Companies of today are committed in environmental issues and they are working with CSR as an integrated part of their business. Right now we are thinking about how to have an organized labor market when more and more people are becoming self employed and the platform economy is expanding. In other words, we are thinking about the future.

    The problem

    What will be the major question for the labor market and our society in 2020? Where are we then? What will be our challenges? Unionen wants to be the future union for the future members and therefore we need to think about what the future will bring. Help us find out.
