Working with real-world projects strengthens your entrepreneurial and innovative capabilities and make it possible to acquire and test new competencies.

In Oi-X you will have the possibility to collaborate closely with industry leaders, and experts from the sponsor companies. They bring the challenges and you and your team can get in dialogue with the company for sparring and support, to boost your development.  

Oi-X can be an integrated part of your studies as for example a final bachelor’s or master’s project, internships, courses or as extra-curricular such as a student job.
