The concept

In The Pocket will select 13 enthusiastic graduates for a unique 4-day challenge. Our Summer Academy is the perfect vehicle to challenge your ability to come up with creative solutions to pressing issues through design thinking. Get ready to learn new skills, work with real experts, meet new people and boost your career.

Previous years, we collaborated with Refu Interim to help political refugees obtain their first Belgian job and with VRT to come up with the best way to get young people excited about the elections. Last year we've teamed up with Bednet to find an innovative solution to help optimise the overall user experience for teacher, fellow students and the "Bednetterns" themselves.  

We can't reveal this year's challenge just yet, but it looks very promising.

Throughout the weekend we'll tackle the challenge in a so-called Design Sprint which finds its roots in Design Thinking.
