Challenge 06

For the sixth year in a row the Enterprise Engineering (EE) Challenge has been organised in collaboration with dr. Wided Gu├ędria and Prof.dr. Erik Proper of the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, (LIST) and the HU University of Applied Sciences (Master of Informatics and the Smart Sustainable Cities Centre of Expertise). The EE Challenge is a competition between groups of students (4 to 5 people) of the Master of Informatics (MSc) in which a mobility issue in Luxembourg is being tackled. For this, 23 students from the MoI traveled to Luxembourg in February 2019, accompanied by Prof.dr.ing. Pascal Ravesteijn and Ing. Mieke Braadbaart, member program management of the master. This year Francesco Ferrero, Lead Partnership Officer - Mobility, Logistics and Smart Cities at LIST, presented the problem statement that was brought forward from the organization (MUV - Mobility Urban ValuesMUV - Mobility Urban Values) EU-funded project. The assignment involved the development of a strategy for a smart mobility solutionservice: how can the existing MUV serviceapp be developed further so that it will be successfully adopted by the inhabitants of the town of Dudelange and by other cities at large.
On the last day of the challenge the five student teams presented their results. The level of the elaborations and presentations was high. The team of Wilma van Etten, Geert Dreuning, Tim Loggen, Gerard Folkerts and Geert Jan Klinkhamer won the EE Challenge 2019! Congratulations to you!
The EE Challenge 2019 provided MUV with valuable inspiration for further innovating the app. The challenge resulted in feedback for the MUV consortium and the LIST researchers, for their current research activities. Students of the MoI offered the opportunity to do their Master Thesis project under the co-supervision of LIST researchers. Professor Erik Proper will also be available as member of the thesis commission at exam sessions of the Master of Informatics (MSc). The EE Challenge is one of the activities of the EE Network and is an integral part of ITIS 'research activities’ (IT for Innovation Services, ITIS), a collaboration between Prof. Erik Proper and Dr. Ir. Raymond Slot MBA, former lecturer at University of applied sciences of Utrecht. Both have a seat in the management of the EE Network. The Master of Informatics (www.moi.hu.nl) consists of three areas: learning of theoretical concepts and their application in practice, development of personal skills and the development of scientific research skills. The international study trip is part of the personal skills curriculum. The Smart Sustainable Cities Centre of Expertise provides a platform where people from the business world and from institutes of knowledge can join HU University of Applied Sciences to develop innovative products and services that will bring smart, sustainable and healthy cities a step closer. Students, businesses, lecturers and researchers work together in projects in order to apply the latest knowledge and insight.
