If you are part of a company, civil society organisation or you are a policymaker or an academic, and you are interested in submitting a challenge that can be addressed together with our CHARM-EU students, go ahead and send us your challenge by the 24 March at 23:59 CEST.

The Capstone is the final phase of the CHARM-EU Master’s programme Global Challenges for Sustainability. Starting in September 2023, for a period of 6 months, student teams collaborate with academics and external stakeholders to identify, analyse and address sustainability challenges. In doing so, they creatively devise robust, adaptable, ethical and sustainable solutions for these challenges. 

Both external stakeholders and academics can submit a challenge that they would like to collaborate on with students. The Capstone can generate knowledge, fresh insights and other useful outputs related to a challenge that actors address in their work field. Outputs from the Capstone can include scientific analyses; business models; policy briefs or recommendations; media campaigns; communication materials; and software, methods, tools or prototypes. 

The deadline for challenge submissions is the 24 March. 

Submissions of challenges can be done through the following webpage:
