Disrupt Campus Bordeaux gives students from all fields the opportunity to discover the challenges of innovation and transition by working, in project mode, on specific, concrete cases submitted by companies, public institutions, regional authorities or associations.

Grouped together in multidisciplinary teams of 3- to 5-students from different fields of study, they are coached weekly by a University of Bordeaux professor. This is an opportunity allowing each of them to draw on their own field to address cross-disciplinary topics that require more than just a compartmentalised approach.

Along with the concrete cases, Disrupt Campus Bordeaux also provides:

  • courses given by lecturer-researchers and professionals in the field, enabling the development of cross-disciplinary skills: project methodology, creative methodology, public speaking, etc.
  • company and facility tours and meetings within the local ecosystem to develop their network and to integrate innovation and transition issues into their career goals
  • additional online educational resources, for more in-depth study of the topics based on each student's special interests.
