United Nations Sustainable

Development Goals!

20 - 22 April, Gothenburg

We all live on this planet.

Everyone, absolutely everyone is dependent on what our planet gives us. And our planet is dependent on the creatures living on it.

We gather companies and organizations that all have something to do with Sustainability and connect them to you, students, to help them and, in turn, help yourself to change our society for the better.


A Black Dot Innovation Weekend gathers students, innovation actors and organizations to tackle challenges, and find innovative and sustainable solutions.

For 3 intensive days, students work on an idea or concept product from a partner company that has something to do with Sustainability.


Students are supported by mentors and given a crash course in innovation processes and tools throughout the event. At the end of the three days, the students pitch their idea and then, starts the implementation phase.

What you do as a student:

  • Work with real project

  • To create real value and opportunities

  • With a real organization

  • With a real team

  • Deliver an evidence-based pitch

What you gain as a student:

  • The opportunity to make a positive impact with a company

  • Work experience for your resume

  • Valuable connections for the future

  • Experience in realizing an idea

  • Knowledge in innovation and entrepreneurial processes

And afterwards?

If you and your team want to continue to work on your project, as many other students have done before, we offer continued innovation support for up to 6 months. This is your true chance to create real value both for yourself and others.
