Highlights from Ideathon 2020


Ideathon is an innovation competition where students create innovative solutions for students. The goal for Ideathon 2020 was for the contestants to come up with ideas and consepts for Norway's best student-app.

About Ideathon

The consept «SSN Ideathon» revolves around creating new, innovative solutions that improve the everyday life for students, by arranging innovation competitions and generating ideas.

Under Ideathon 2020 hadde studentene 30 intensive timer på seg til å komme opp med løsningen på Norges beste studentapplikasjon. Arrangementet bestod av workshops, idé- og konseptutvikling, foredrag, underholdning og avslutningsvis en pitche-konkurranse.

Det ble kåret tre vinnerlag og førsteplassen gikk til laget «Passord123» med ideen «SSN student». Denne gikk ut på å dele opp SSN, USN og tredjepartsleverandørers studenttjenester i «mikrotjenester» i én app. Vinnerlaget gikk hjem med 100 000 kr og muligheten til å, sammen med SSN, Rada Labs and Prosesspilotenein developing Norway's best student-app.

«Ideathon was a fun and educational experience. You don't have to be an engineer or a programmer to participate, everyone has something they can contribute to a group! The fact that we could show a finished consept for the app already after 1-2 days was the highlight for me!»
