This idea was co-created at the OpenIDEO Vienna Chapter Ideation Jam
Instead of choosing just a major, students choose in addition problems from the local community they wish to work on. Problems would come from the community and organisations in the community. Defining the specific problem would be part of the process.
Students work across disciplines and tackle problems with the community in a collaborative way. Problem Solving would be part of of the curriculum. Students receive money to implement solutions to the problem.
